Anniston Museum of Natural History FREE Admission Day 2015

annistonmuseum
We visit the Anniston Museum of Natural History at least once a year.  Bug loves it!  Last year we found out about FREE Admission Day they do every year in August to celebrate the museum’s birthday!  (It turns 85 years old this year!)

annistonmuseumday

This year, FREE Admission to the Anniston Museum of Natural History will be on Saturday, August 29!  From 10am to 4:30pm.

Last year they had a bird show and this year they’re having a reptile show!  (Last year it started early, so I would plan to be there at opening to see the reptile show!)

Admission to the Berman Museum is also FREE on 8/29.

Spend the whole day at the Museums and picnic with Dixie Dogs: Their delicious hot dog combo includes two all-beef dogs fixed the way you want, plus chips and a drink for only $5!
