Summer is sadly coming to a close, but the Terre Haute Children’s Museum is here to cheer your spirits and get you excited about the holidays with a “Christmas in September” engraved brick special!
The holidays may be months away, but you can get a jump start on your shopping by sponsoring a brick at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum! Is there a new baby in your family, a couple who recently married, or a loved one who you would like to honor or memorialize? We have bricks for children, families, teachers, organizations and more, and, by sponsoring a brick now, this not only guarantees that it will be engraved before Christmas, but you’ll also get some added bonus items!
Kids’ bricks, for children 18 and younger, are $79, hold
one line of up to 16 characters, and during the Christmas in September sale, Kids’ brick sponsors will receive 2 free Museum admission passes and a $5 gift certificate for the Museum’s Science Store.
Two-line bricks are $199, hold two lines of up to 16 characters each, and two-line brick sponsors will receive four free Museum admission passes and a $10 gift certificate for the Museum’s Science Store.
Four-line limestone blocks are $1,000, hold four lines of up to 16 characters each, and limestone block sponsors will receive 10 free Museum admission passes and a $50 gift certificate to the Museum’s Science Store.
Those who are purchasing a two-line brick or limestone to honor an educator can also choose to have their bricks placed in a special section called the Educators’ Corner.
Engraved bricks and limestones make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, retirements and more. And, your tax-deductible brick sponsorship will help the Museum raise much-needed funding for exhibits, programs and scholarships!
If you have already sponsored a brick or limestone but have not yet found it on the Museum’s walls, you can use our brickfinder system to see its location. To use the system, visit www.thchildrensmuseum.com/brickfinder and use the Search function to locate bricks by searching for the text that was placed on the brick or the name of the person who purchased the brick. The Brick Finder will then show where the brick is located on the outside walls of the Children’s Museum. There is also a Browse button, which can be used to see all the bricks in each section. The Brick Finder site was created by Andy Kruth, who graduated from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 2011 with a degree in software engineering and computer science.
