This special free admission weekend event was made possible by the exclusive sponsorship of Metro by T-Mobile, a company that is well recognized for their superior community service in the greater Worcester region and beyond.

“We continue to be thankful to those who provide care and support to so many people in our community during these difficult times,” shared Lucy Hale, EcoTarium president and CEO. “Community partnerships make it possible to offer valuable experiences for our visitors throughout the year. Thanks to our partner Metro by T-Mobile for this wonderful opportunity before our institution begins dormancy through the winter.”

As the historic institution prepares to develop environmental and STEM-focused educational programs and roll out new community focused programs, Metro by T-Mobile will remain engaged as a sponsor of future events and exhibits.
