Minnesota Children’s Museum and Securian Financial Launch Securian Financial Free First Sundays
UPDATED Feb. 28, 2022 – Admission will be free at Minnesota Children’s Museum the first Sunday of each month under a new Securian Financial sponsorship. The Securian Financial Free First Sundays program will launch March 6. Capacity is limited and all visitors, including museum members, must reserve a ticket in advance.
The free day program will help give all families, regardless of income, the opportunity to experience the joy and learning that happens at Minnesota Children’s Museum. Children will explore three floors of interactive exhibits as they learn and grow through play. The program will also bring thousands of visitors to downtown St. Paul each year, contributing to the vibrancy of the area.
“We’re grateful that Securian Financial shares the museum’s commitment to ensuring that all families have access to playful learning,” said Dianne Krizan, president of Minnesota Children’s Museum. “Sponsors like Securian Financial are an integral part of the museum’s community outreach efforts and we are thrilled to be working with them.”
Securian Financial is a Fortune 500 financial services company1 headquartered in downtown St. Paul with more than 3,000 employees reporting to their St. Paul offices.
“We are proud to join forces with Minnesota Children’s Museum to help them ensure that all children get a chance to learn and explore this magical museum and wonderful downtown St. Paul asset,” said Nicole Hansen, Securian Financial’s director of community engagement and executive director of the Securian Financial Foundation.
