Admission Free Museum Experience
Effective Wednesday, September 6, guests visiting the museum will enter free of charge thanks to the generosity of the Edward E. and Donna L. Martins Foundation. The Martins have generously provided funding to cover the cost of admissions for the next three years. Ed and Donna are asking guests to contribute what they can when they visit, as a way to encourage people to support the work of HAHS. However, contributions are not required for people to enjoy the exhibitions or the childrenÕs space. ÒWe hope that this new policy will encourage young families, as well as people who are new to the area, and in this way, we can expand our visitor base,Ó said Membership and Marketing Manager Marcess Owings.
