Shults Auto Group and the National Comedy Center

Free admission for kids all summer long

TheĀ National Comedy Center, the nation's official museum and cultural institution dedicated to comedy, has announced today that kids and teens, age 17 and under, will be admitted to its museums for free throughout the summer, made possible with the generous support of Shults Auto Group.

This unprecedented, 14-week summer admission opportunity will enable more families to experience the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY on the heels of it being named one of U.S. News & World Reports "Top 25 Family Weekend Getaways" in the country - joining Walt Disney World and Disneyland on that list. Up to two kids and teens will be admitted free with an accompanying paying adult from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
"With free admission for kids all summer long, at a national attraction named one of the best family destinations in the country and going toe-to-toe with spots like Disneyland on that list, there has never been a better time to visit the National Comedy Center," stated National Comedy Center Executive Director Journey Gunderson. "We are thrilled that this unique opportunity makes the interactive museum experience more accessible for families - made possible by the generous underwriting of Shults Auto Group," stated National Comedy Center Executive Director Journey Gunderson.

"Shults Auto Group is pleased to join with the National Comedy Center to offer more kids the chance to experience this award-winning museum throughout the summer months, while making it more accessible than ever before for residents of our community and throughout Western New York," stated Tim Shults, President of Shults Auto Group. "There is nothing like a day of laughter and fun at the National Comedy Center, so the Shults Auto Group team wanted to make it possible for more families and kids to enjoy this national attraction."

The National Comedy Center, which was named the "#1 Best New Museum" and the "#2 Best New Attraction" in the country by USA Today, and one of the "World's Greatest Places" by TIME magazine, offers an immersive and interactive experience designed for families and children of all ages to enjoy a curation of comedy's greatest content throughout time, use green screens to get into classic comedy scenes, create their own memes and cartoons, and even try comedy karaoke.

In addition to being recently named by U.S. News & World Report as a "25 Top Family Weekend Getaway in the U.S." in a list of destinations that included Walt Disney World and Disneyland, Western New York Family Magazine called the National Comedy Center a "Must See Destination for school-aged children,", and I LOVE NY named the Comedy Center one of the best "family-friend indoor activities" in New York State. Macaroni KID raved about the Comedy Center's "kid-friendly laughs," stating, "We spent nearly four hours at the museum and still had to drag our 7- and 9-year-olds away!"

The Kids and Teens Free program will run from May 26, 2023 through Monday, September 4, 2023. Up to two kids and teens will be admitted free to both the National Comedy Center Museum and the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum with the purchase of an admission ticket by an accompanying adult.
