Government employees receive free entry to Maritime Museum

In the face of a long government shutdown, the Door County Maritime Museum is offering free entry to federal employees and their immediate families as long as business remains suspended. The Maritime Museum has been in contact with other museums and cultural institutions across the country and decided the move would be an excellent way to show appreciation for families most impacted by the shutdown. The offer is also being extended to members of the active duty U.S. Coast Guard and their immediate families as well. Executive Director Kevin Osgood said he is excited to open up an opportunity for federal employees and their families because it spreads a message of goodwill throughout the county.



Osgood said the offer would be valid for as long as the government stays shut down, and mentioned all programs fall under the deal.
