The Stafford Air and Space Museum is happy to announce its second annual Open House and Membership Drive which will take place on Saturday, November 2, 2013. This year's event is a great way to visit the museum for free, take in some science demonstrations and enjoy a guided tour. Lunch will be served through the noon hour to all attending. Planetarium shows will begin in the afternoon for younger visitors. Guests can sign up for a membership of their choice or renew their membership throughout the event.
This event marks another successful year of the museum incorporating the Smithsonian Institution's membership as part of its program. The museum became a Smithsonian Affiliate in summer of 2011 and just one year later announced its new membership program including the Smithsonian. This new program not only extends individual, family, and corporate membership to the Stafford Museum, it offers an exclusive membership to the Smithsonian. One special benefit of the two-in-one membership package is the opportunity to visit other Smithsonian Affiliate museums at discounted admission prices. There are 181 affiliates currently in the United States and only three are in Oklahoma. The Stafford Air and Space Museum is the only affiliate in western Oklahoma.
Doors will open at 9am on Saturday and the event will last until 3pm. There will be a special drawing to win a pair of Thunder tickets for those who sign up to become members or renew their current membership. Everyone is invited out to enjoy a fun family day at the museum and encouraged to invite their friends and family.
