Reynolda House Offers Free Admission to Teachers

As the school year comes to a close, I think we can all agree that NC teachers deserve a little getaway! In a show of appreciation, Reynolda House Museum of American Art is offering free admission to all pre-K through grade 12 teachers at public and private schools in NC from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2023.  

“We are delighted that we are able to offer free admission as a thank you to teachers again this summer,” said Allison Perkins, executive director for Reynolda House and Wake Forest associate provost for Reynolda House and Reynolda Gardens.  “Our commitment to education is central to our mission at Reynolda, and we’re pleased to extend our free admission program for teachers for the third summer in a row. We are very grateful to The Rotary Club of Winston-Salem for helping us make this possible. There will be several historic house exhibitions on display along with our main collection and our beautiful Gardens.” 

Teachers may receive one complimentary admission per visit to Reynolda House and may redeem in person upon arrival or register in advance online at Proper ID is required at check-in.
