Museum hosting Family Night

Fun Friday event kicks off Mother's Day weekend

Pleasanton families are invited to go back to the future at the first Family Night at the Museum taking place from 6-9 p.m., Friday, May 9, at Museum on Main. This event is a 1980s-inspired party with music, dancing, games, a photo booth and more. Costumes are encouraged.

"There's something really exciting about being in a museum after the sun goes down," noted Jennifer Amiel, director of education.

Tickets are $5 per child, $10 per adult or a $25 Family Pack for two adults and two children. They are available at the museum, 603 Main St., during regular operating hours, by phoning 462-2766 or online at www.museumonmain.org. Tickets can be purchased at the door if available. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase at the event.

"We hope to open the museum for family nights every few months and with different themes," Amiel said. "This first event will be a 1980s theme, but we also hope to host a Western Round-Up and a Bollywood Dance Night."

The Museum on Main is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
