The Museum held its first-ever Family Fun Day on Saturday, February 2. Nearly 700 people attended to learn about the working world of K9s with special guest K9 Russell and his handler, Corporal Matthew Werner from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Visitors used our Maker Station to create dog toys to donate to the Humane Rescue Alliance and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Virginia. They also had the chance to design a dog collar, create an animal puppet, take part in a scavenger hunt, face painting and more. Visitors seeking a calmer, quieter experience could pick out a book to read from our book nook or color K9-themed pages. Best of all, the entire day was free, enabling everyone to see and experience all that the Museum has to offer.
“Our Museum offers one of the most family-friendly and unique experiences in the Washington, DC area.” said David L. Brant, executive director of the National Law Enforcement Museum. “By offering free admission during our Family Fun Day, we hope many people who had not previously had the opportunity to visit our Museum could experience it first-hand during this free admission day that was chocked full of activities for everyone.”
