Free admission to the High Desert Museum, courtesy of Mid Oregon Credit Union, is scheduled for two Saturdays, January 24 and February 21, 2015. The “Free Family Saturday” complimentary admission program supports the educational mission of Mid Oregon Credit Union by providing the community with the opportunity to explore 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., including the Rimrock Café and Silver Sage Trading Store.

“Every year we look forward to meeting and greeting all the families who come out for the Free Family Saturdays at the High Desert Museum,” said Kyle Frick, Mid Oregon Credit Union VP of Marketing and Community Relations. “No matter what the weather, we see young and old alike who are smiling, energized, and ready to enjoy this amazing Central Oregon resource!”

NOTE: Parking is limited – a free shuttle is offered from the Morning Star Christian School parking lot to the Museum and back all day. Children requiring car seats are not allowed to ride the shuttle.
