Throughout the month of October, Desert Caballeros Western Museum is offering special introductory rates on one- and two-year memberships. In recognition of their support of DCWM, members receive free admission to the museum, special access to the artists and exhibitions featured in the museum, and free admission or discounts to many of the programs and workshops offered throughout the year. With an exciting season of events ahead, a museum membership pays for itself in only a few visits. Visit the museum or westernmuseum.org for more information.
DCWM will thank its loyal museum members with Member Appreciation Days, a special weekend of events, raffles, and discounts from Oct. 11 -13. From 9 – 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11, members can visit the museum’s Cultural Crossroads Learning Center to examine a selection of photographs, albums, documents, and historic objects from the museum’s archives, highlighting 50 years of Museum history. Cookies and coffee will be served in the Ranch Dressing store. Throughout the entire weekend, members will receive an extra 5 percent discount on most purchases in the museum stores and can earn raffle tickets by visiting the museum and shopping in the stores. The grand prize is two tickets to one of the museum’s desert adventure tours.
