The National Comedy Center offering free admission to Chautauqua County youth

The museum has created a program to allow families to have a touch-free family field trip, with parents getting discounted admission as well, through April 11.

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — Winter break looks pretty different this year for families, so a Jamestown museum is trying to put a smile on the faces of families in need of a little time out of the house.

The National Comedy Center is offering free admission to any young person under 17 years old who lives in Chautauqua County through April 11. The hope is to offer some "worry-free and touch-free" family fun during winter break.

Here's how it works: up to three youths can go to the museum with one paying adult, and the museum is also discounting adult admission by 60 percent, to $10. 

Registration is strongly recommended, the museum says. You can click here to learn more.

The National Comedy Center says they've have an award-winning health and safety program to protect their visitors. They've worked with health professionals from both UPMC Chautauqua and UPMC Pittsburgh to create their rules and plans for COVID-19 safety.
