September marks the eighth year Hawaii Island museums are collaborating to open their doors to other museums’ members.
“Celebrating Museums Month” is designed to cross-promote these important local institutions.
During the month of September, each Big Isle museum will provide free admission to the members of other participating institutions when a current museum membership card is shown.
Some institutions also will be offering discounts on store items or tours to these members.
This month-long celebration of museums provides local residents with a low-cost opportunity to explore and experience the rich resources of Hawaii found in museums, from zoos and gardens to history and science centers.
The 12 institutions in East and West Hawaii collectively represent the major informal education resources on Hawaii Island. Memberships help support the nonprofit organizations and further their educational missions.
The public is invited to purchase membership at participating institutions and take advantage of this month-long program.
Museum members will have an opportunity to spend September exploring and discovering the wonders and treasures of museums they might not yet have experienced, or might not have visited in a long time.
Celebrating Museums Month free admission and benefits apply to museum members with a current membership card and proper ID.
Contact individual museums for more information or visit www.lymanmuseum.org for a list of participating museums, benefits offered and their operating hours.
