Join me on this First Tuesday for a photo day at the museum. This will be my first time at the museum as well. You can tour the museum with the group or on your own. There's food vendors with reasonably priced food or we can decide to have a potluck lunch if the group wishes.
Potluck Picnic Friendly Museum: If you’re bringing your own food, we invite you to picnic under the trees on the grass in front of the Museum, or on the picnic benches overlooking the Rose Garden adjacent to the Museum. Chichen Itza is also close by, .7 mile.
Once a month they have Free admission on the First Tuesday which is normally $12.. There is a butterfly pavilion and a spider pavilion.. And if you have never been to this place you have no idea what you are missing..
For Butterfly Pavilion and Spider Pavilion: Adults: $3.00, Seniors/Students: $2.00, and Children: $1.00
