The Newton History Museum is offering free admission to all visitors during its Community Weekends, which are currently being held on the first weekend of each month.

The next Community Weekends will be held on October 6 and 7, November 3 and 4, and December 1 and 2. The Museum Ship is also holding a holiday sale in conjunction with the December dates, in which patrons will receive a 10% discount, and members will receive an additional 10% off in addition to their usual discount.The Museum is open from 12 noon to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Current exhibits at the Museum include "Four-Legged Newton," a family-oriented exhibit and play space that looks at the connections between people and animals throughout the history of Newton, and "Norumbega: Recreation and Romance by the River," which takes a nostalgic look back at Norumbega Park, which was one of the region's premiere recreation and entertainment destinations in the first half of the 20th century.

Museum officials are urging anyone interested in finding out more about community weekends to call 617-796-1450 or visit the museum online.
