  • Admission to the Delaware Museum of Natural History will be waived from 9:30 a.m. - noon on Sunday, March 3, courtesy of PNC Bank. This PNC Free Sunday Morning is part of a grant from the PNC Foundation, which receives its principle funding from The PNC Financial Services Group.
    PNC Free Sunday Mornings are funded as part of the Grow Up Great with Science grant program, which provides local preschool children with opportunities to learn science basics and experience related activities that are educational and fun. The Delaware Museum of Natural History is in the last year of a four-year grant that has allowed the Museum to train local preschool teachers and introduce families of preschool children to science through visits to the Museum's interactive exhibits. Museum experts have also traveled to classrooms to help teachers create children's activities that enable them to explore science with their senses and use simple tools to test their ideas. Many of the activities have received assistance from PNC employees as volunteers.
    The PNC Free Sunday Morning on March 3 is the second of three at the Delaware Museum of Natural History for the 2012-13 school year. The next PNC Free Sunday Morning is scheduled for Sunday, June 23, 2013.
