Dollar Day comes to The Museum of the Great Plains

The Museum of the Great Plains will have a special Dollar Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday that will feature not just discounted prices but some special treats and a visit from Santa.

Admission will be $1 per person. It will be the first time the museum has had a Dollar Day, but Executive Director John Hernandez hopes it won't be the last. 

"This is our first initiative, but we are wanting to do more," Hernandez said. "This is something we wanted to do to give back to the community." 

As a special treat for the kids, Santa will also be in attendance and he'll be available for visits from 2-4 p.m.

"Santa will be around if anyone needs to make any last-minute changes to their lists," Hernandez said. 

Parents are urged to take their phones or cameras because the museum will not have a photographer available for photographs. Hernandez is excited about the event and hopes everyone can come take advantage of the reduced ticket price. 

The museum gets new exhibits in every six months on a rotating basis, and its goal is to try to have a Dollar Day at least once during every new exhibit. 

"We want as many people as possible to be able to experience these traveling exhibits, so we really hope to be able to hold more of these," he said.
