The Virginia Museum of Natural History is currently open on Sundays as part of its "Summer Discovery" program taking place from May 25 to August 31, 2014. In addition to Sunday openings, the program will include discounted new memberships and PALEO Cafe specials.

“We are excited to begin opening the museum each Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.,” said Dr. Joe Keiper, executive director of VMNH.  “Many of our out-of-town visitors visit the museum on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer, and our Sunday openings will better accommodate our visitors’ schedules.”

In addition to opening its doors on Sundays, the museum is offering $10 discounts on new memberships at the “Individual” level and higher purchased during the promotion period.  Museum memberships are available in both one-year and two-year options, and include free unlimited admission, free or reduced admission at over 200 museums and science centers worldwide that are members of the Association of Science-Technology Centers, a 10 percent discount on purchases made in the VMNH Museum Store and PALEO Cafe, and more.

"VMNH Memberships are a great way to support the museum while receiving a variety of unique, exciting benefits,” said Ryan Barber, deputy director of VMNH.  “In addition to providing a variety of benefits, museum memberships provide funding for vital programs in research, education and exhibits.”

The “Summer Discovery” program also includes the PALEO Cafe’s new “10 for 10” program that provides discounted admission and lunch for groups of 10 or more individuals.
