As parents, we all know that summertime is meant to be a time to relax and enjoy…but we also know kids can get bored really quickly after a few weeks of no school and all pool time. It’s important to have a few fun excursions planned that won’t break your budget.
In Winston-Salem, we are lucky because there are a lot of things to do with your kids. There are the obvious choices such as the Reynolda House, Old Salem, and Kaleideum. These are great options, but don’t forget The Winston Cup Museum Special Event Center! This is a great place to bring your kids for a fun outing. And, did we mention we have race cars?
Most importantly, The Winston Cup Museum is affordable! Our ticket prices for kids 5-12 years old are $4.00 each, and all kids age 4 and under get in for free. Adult prices are $8.00 each. A family of four can enjoy the museum for under $30. That’s a pretty good deal! And if you bring a group of 15 or more we can also offer deeper discounts.
Maybe just as important, our museum is FUN! We have lots of race cars and it’s hard for any other museum to compete with that fun factor. But we also like to make sure our young visitors see the correlation between subjects like math, science, and artistic creativity with the design, fabrication, build and painting/decaling one of these cars. Sometimes those subjects seem really boring to our young students, but when they realize they have to know all of those things to do the fun stuff, it clicks with them.
We’ve had summer camp tours, day cares and even science and math classes from the local school system come to visit us for that very reason! We keep saying it, but it’s true – we have lots of race cars! There are over 20 authentic NASCAR race cars that you can actually get up close and personal with. And that makes our museum kind of special because most race fans never really get to stand right beside a race car. Some museums won’t allow photography but we love it when visitors come and take lots of photographs and share them on social media with their friends and family. Just as long as they love us, like us, tweet us, etc – the more the merrier.
If you are looking to plan a birthday party, The Winston Cup Museum is a great option! Over the years, we’ve hosted parties for kids of all ages in our 10,000-square foot space. With two party packages, we provide options for busy moms and dads needing a little help ,or a lot of help, in pulling off the perfect birthday party. We can also go a step further and provide a photographer, tents, additional décor and other add-on services.
One more cool thing about us is that we have something that every big and little kid loves – video games and pinball. The truth is we have these fun games at the museum because we actually really like to play them ourselves! You could show up at the museum and might catch us doing just that.
So don’t forget to include a fun outing to The Winston Cup Museum Special Event Center this summer with your kids. We promise you’re going to have a good time!
