Cade Museum to Open Synthetic Ice-Skating Rink on July 3

By Amanda Roland

Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention just announced the opening of a synthetic ice-skating rink in the museum’s rotunda on July 3.

This ice-skating rink is in collaboration with the museum’s summer collections of “cool” inventions. The exhibits will teach you about air conditioning, refrigeration and artificial ice, and you can learn more about Florida-based inventors who were important to “cool” inventions.

“Museum guests can reserve a skating time upon entering the museum, and the cost of skating is included with museum admission. Adults and children ages five and up can skate using real, Cade-supplied ice skates and younger children will have the option of sock skating,” according to a Cade Museum press release. “Skating hours will initially be Fridays and Saturdays, from Noon to 4:45 p.m., and the skating rink will remain at the museum through August 23rd.”

On Thursdays, the museum will also host themed skating parties that will only be available with advanced registration. You can learn how to register by clicking here! 

“We are thrilled to offer this unique experience to guests of the museum,” said Stephanie Bailes, Executive Director of The Cade Museum.  “In addition to fostering a spirit of purposeful creativity and providing one-of-a-kind summer memories through this fun and engaging activity we are celebrating world-changing inventions from Florida.”
