CMoR’s Summer Series kicks off this weekend

On select weekends in July and August CMoR Central and CMoR Chesterfield will host some seriously fun events–all free with museum admission.

The Children’s Museum of Richmond’s Summer Series returns this weekend to wow RVA’s littlest citizens. But this year they’ve taken things up a notch by sharing the love with CMoR’s Chesterfield branch.

On select weekends in July and August CMoR Central and CMoR Chesterfield will host some seriously fun events, all free with museum admission. And they’ve kept it really simple: on those select weekends, CMoR Central gets the events on Saturdays while CMoR Chesterfield gets them on Sunday.

Check out the schedule below–looks like there’s something for everyone.
