There is a cafe in the Museum that will provide our coffee in a.m. and our box lunch.
The cost for the box lunch is $10 and the cost of Museum admission is $12.60 (there is no cost for the meeting room as we have met the requirements to be an educational group).

Please let us know asap that you are coming,  what you might be bringing, and what else you might like to see in the program.

We will be among the very first visitors to the new Museum, and I think we will all enjoy the program and the setting. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
