Explore the Delaware Museum of Natural History for  Just $1 Every Tuesday in August

Every Tuesday in August, the Delaware Museum of Natural History is partnering with Artisans' Bank to lower admission prices to just $1 per person during Artisans' Bank Dollar Tuesdays. Visitors are invited to explore the wonders of the natural world at the Museum for just $1 on August 5, 12, 19, and 26, courtesy of Artisans' Bank.

Admission includes entry to the Museum's special exhibit, BUGS: Outside the Box, where visitors can get up close with a dragonfly's delicate wing, the huge mandible of a stag beetle, or even a section of a butterfly's scaled wing. They'll view intricate details not visible to the naked eye and learn fun facts about metamorphosis, adaptability, camouflage, and important roles insects play in our natural world.

Elsewhere in the Museum, galleries showcase Delaware's only dinosaurs on permanent display, a life-sized model of a giant squid, a coral reef walkover, an African watering hole, and exotic mollusk and bird collections. The Larry F. Scott Nature Trail and Butterfly Garden reach their peak this time of year, and visitors can cool off inside to view a insect-themed film in our DuPont Auditorium.  So much exploring can build up an appetite, so each Dollar Tuesday will also feature the I Don't Give a Fork food truck, a growing culinary icon in the Wilmington area, as well as fresh fruit and produce from the Point Lookout Farm Produce Stand..

Artisans' Bank is the presenting sponsor of August Dollar Tuesdays.

WHAT: Artisans' Bank Dollar Tuesdays

WHERE: Delaware Museum of Natural History, 4840 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, DE 19807

DATE: Tuesday, August 5, 12, 19, and 26.

TIME: 9:30-4:30 p.m.

ADMISSION: $1 per person. This special price may not be combined with any other discounts, promotions, or offers.
