Krispy Kreme Sponsors ‘Doughnut Days’ with Reduced Admission and Special Activities
“Because of Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation’s generous sponsorship, we have added activities such as a mini doughnut maker in the toddler area of the exhibit and upgraded the Krispy Kreme truck to have lights and sounds in the dashboard,” said Elizabeth Dampier, Kaleideum Executive Director. “In addition, we added a pretend coffee station and improved the aesthetics of the overall exhibit.”
Representatives from Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation will speak about the exhibit at 10 am on Saturday, June 23, and from 10 am to Noon, visitors can enjoy free doughnuts and coffee outside the Museum. In addition, the Krispy Kreme Cruiser and Delivery Truck will be parked in the Kaleideum parking lot and available for touring. During the day, Kaleideum Downtown will offer doughnut-themed story times in the Amazing Library and make-and-take doughnut accessories in The Prop Shop — including glasses, headbands, hats, necklaces, and more — all inspired by Winston-Salem’s famous sweet treat!
“We are very grateful for Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation’s continued commitment to Kaleideum and its investment in creating hands-on experiences that help build important skills and learning reimagined through familiar places and products,” Dampier said. “This exhibit will provide many cherished memories for families throughout our community.”

Kaleideum North (formerly SciWorks) was founded by the Junior League of Winston-Salem and opened its doors as the Nature Science Center in 1964. Kaleideum Downtown (formerly The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem) was founded by the Junior League of Winston-Salem and opened its doors on November 20, 2004.
