Those visitors will be able to check out the museum and planetarium for free all of February. They just need to prove their residence to the front desk with an ID or other documents.
Announced in late January, Meta granted $300,000 to the museum. Aside from sponsoring the free museum trips for county residents, the money will help provide educational visits for 5th graders in Valencia County. Funds are also going to be used to create space science programming and planetarium shows.
