    Thanks to everyone who made it out to the event. Hopefully you were able to explore all the museum had to offer in a setting you normally would not be able to experience during regular hours... with great company!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
