Free Family Days at the High Desert Museum

Free Family Saturdays at the High Desert Museum

Community Invited to Free Family Saturdays

Mid Oregon Credit Union invites the community to enjoy free admission to the High Desert Museum on January 26 and February 23, 2019. The “Free Family Saturday” complimentary admission program supports the community with the opportunity to explore art, wildlife and living history right in Central Oregon’s backyard. The museum is located five minutes south from Bend on Highway 97. The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with Rimrock Café open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Silver Sage Trading open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Great Exhibits Await Visitors

“Mid Oregon Credit Union’s generous support of two Free Family Saturdays invites the community to experience the Museum,” says High Desert Museum Executive Director Dana Whitelaw, Ph.D. “The well-known Spirit of the West and By Hand Through Memory exhibitions are open for families as well as temporary exhibitions – John Simpkins’ Desert Mystic is still on display and Rick Bartow’s Things You Know But Cannot Explain makes its debut on the first Free Family Day this year.”

Who do you know that would benefit from a free day in this quality educational and fun environment? Other family members? Co-workers or neighbors? Young families and others who might have a difficult time with admission fees? Would you share this opportunities with anyone and everyone you know?
