'Back to the Future' pricing at Mid-America Science Museum

Hot Springs, AR: On December 10th, Mid-America Science Museum (MASM) is stepping back in time with extremely low pricing.  General Admission for this one day event will be $2.75 + tax (all ages), the same price for Museum general admission in 1982. 

“It’s the Museum’s way of saying thanks to the community.”  Said Andy Marquart, Executive Director “We are fortunate to have so many people who support us and believe in what we do, and a discounted pricing like this is a way we can extend our gratitude.” 

Recently the Museum was awarded a $7.8 Million capital grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation to renovate the Museum’s building and exhibits. The renewed MASM will offer stronger connections between science and the Museum visitors' everyday lives. With the expansion, the Museum will be able to strengthen its usefulness and appeal to visiting children, while offering expanded learning opportunities for teachers and surrounding school systems as well. Before the Museum can start construction on the project, it must raise a $1.6 million match for the entire grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.  “We are well on our way to reaching our goal for raising the match required to start construction” said Marquart.  “With the help communities help we should be able to begin construction by the Fall of 2012.” 

The Museum has also announced its 2012 Spring/Summer blockbuster, Odyssey’s SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure, opening February 14, 2012.   Encompassing 8,000 square feet, it features more than 500 authentic artifacts recovered by Odyssey from various shipwrecks in the Atlantic Ocean, the English Channel, and the Mediterranean Sea. Taking visitors on the thrilling quest to discover the ocean’s greatest shipwreck stories and treasures, Odyssey’s SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure fuses history, science and technology into an exciting educational experience through the use of interactive elements and real life treasure displays. This interactive, multi-media, visually engaging exhibit features some of the most extraordinary shipwrecks in the world.

The Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm this holiday season with the exception of December 24-25, and January 1, 2012. For more information visit us on the web at www.MidAmericaMuseum.org.
