FREE Admission to THEMUSEUM for Those Vaccinated

Posted on: May 3, 2021 by THEMUSEUM

“JabbedlikeJagger” campaign by THEMUSEUM urges community to get the shot

Kitchener, ON | MAY 3, 2021THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener is offering FREE admission for a visit to THEMUSEUM this summer to anyone with proof of vaccination.

THEMUSEUM, currently closed due to government restrictions, hopes the incentive will help with vaccination efforts. “We want to encourage and thank people for getting the vaccine, and also have everyone, including our team, feel safe when visiting our exhibitions, events, and camps,” says David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “It is so important people get their vaccination as soon as possible.”

Set to host the Canadian premiere of The Rolling Stones | UNZIPPED exhibition in just seven months, THEMUSEUM is preparing to welcome visitors to the exhibition running November 30, 2021 through to February 27, 2022. In true THEMUSEUM fashion, it has developed the basis of the “JabbedlikeJagger” campaign around the message being conveyed by the famous Rolling Stones band member.

Mick Jagger, vocalist of the Rolling Stones has spoken outwardly about the benefits of vaccines in recent weeks, sharing how vaccines helped with the eradication of polio when he was younger. The April 2021 release of the song Easy, Sleazy by Jagger and David Grohl tells a compelling story of the misinformation and conspiracy theories that have run rampant about COVID vaccines over the past few months.

“I am offering all staff at THEMUSEUM $100.00 to help people get past the rumours and not procrastinate!” says Marskell.

Members and guests can experience sneak peeks of THEMUSEUM’s current exhibitions: SONICA | The Sound Experience and DINOSAURS | The Age of Big, Weird Feathered Things on THEMUSEUM’s YouTube channel (THEMUSEUMtv), or once the lockdown is lifted, in-person through September 2021 at 10 King Street West in downtown Kitchener.
