National Automobile Museum, The Discovery to host membership weekend



Auto MuseumWhat’s better than a fun day at the museum? How about a fun weekend at two museums?

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) and the National Automobile Museum are hosting reciprocal admission days on Friday, June 7, and Saturday, June 8. Membership cardholders from both museums will be granted free access to either museum on both days.

“This is a great opportunity to create a unique experience for members and allow them to enjoy both fantastic museums in the community,” said Becky Contos, marketing manager at the National Automobile Museum.

The Discovery will feature an antique fire truck from the National Automobile Museum outside on the plaza, where visitors can climb aboard for a photo op. They will also be showing The Bill Harrah Story and the Magic Carriage throughout the day.

The National Automobile Museum will feature hands-on learning activities for kids created by The Discovery.

To sweeten the deal, a scavenger hunt spanning both museums will take place. Those who finish the hunt will be entered in a drawing for a $50 prize that includes a $25 gift certificate from each museum store.

The Discovery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the National Automobile Museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information on reciprocal day and becoming a member of the National Automobile Museum, please visit www.automuseum.org.
