MeetUps and Happy Hours

Museum professionals are a hard working bunch, so we offer opportunities throughout the year for members and friends to gather, learn, and mix and mingle. MeetUps are special opportunities to go behind-the-scenes of some of our favorite sites, while Happy Hours usually take us to a local pub for cold beverages and fun conversation. Keep an eye on this page as well as our calendar and Facebook page for future events.
