The Works

On December 21, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology in Newark will open their doors to the community free of charge for the day. Executive Director Marcia Downes made the decision for a free community day to show appreciation for the public whose support drives the museum all year long.

“Our community gives so much and we are thankful for their support,” said Marcia. “Having a free community day feels like a great way to give back. We are hoping visitors will enjoy a fun day with family at the museum for the holidays.”

The Works will have special activities available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. including hands-on crafts, ornament making, cookie decorating, scavenger hunts, glassblowing and SciDome shows.

End of season gift shop sales will also be going on with 35% off all glass and stocking stuffers. Guests are even welcome to bring sack lunches, which they can eat while doing activities in the museum’s meeting room. More information can be found by visiting
