FREE Admission to AHMEC This Weekend!

Admission to #AHMEC this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, January 13 and 14, is FREE all day both days thanks to our friends at Whole Foods. If you've ever wanted to see our awesome helicopters, watch some movies about helicopters, play in our helipad and even sit in a helicopter, now's your chance!

An added bonus will be the first Science Saturday program, also FREE!, on Saturday, January 13, from 2 until 3 p.m. This week's lesson, Helicopter Hunt, will use color images, video and lots of fun activities to help kids learn what a helicopter is, what it can do and the basic parts of a helicopter. Kids will identify aircraft, either in the Museum gallery or through large photo posters in a hunt for various helicopter attributes.

And there's more! The first 200 visitors to the museum both days during this weekend will receive a FREE Mystery Whole Foods Gift Card (one per family) to celebrate the Grand Opening of their new store in #extonpa on Thursday, January 18. These gift cards will be loaded with between $5 and $100. To redeem yours, just take it to Whole Foods Market in Exton on your shopping trip during the store’s first two weeks (January 18 until February 4), and discover the card amount when you check out at the register.

Then, on Wednesday, January 24, the museum will participate in the Whole Foods Market Community Day at the new Exton store with a kids science activity. Kids will experience the wonder of electricity by building paper circuits, or small light-up circuits made from paper. They will even be able to take their projects home! Whole Foods will have snacks, and  5% of store sales for the entire day will go to the Chester County Food Bank.

The 50,000-square-foot store, located at 175 North Pottstown Pike, will offer an incredible selection of responsibly and sustainably-sourced produce, cheeses, meats and seafood, scratch-made breads and pastries, groceries and other specialty items (including locally made products). The new location will also include The Cellar, a craft beer and wine shop; a coffee and juice bar; and Pike’s, a Mexican-inspired on-site restaurant serving up tortas, tacos, tequila, mezcal and more.

So, take this weekend off from cleaning, laundry and other household drudgery and come to #AHMEC for FREE for Two Whole Days! Get your Mystery Gift Card and enjoy the amazing space that is the American Helicopter Museum.
