September marks the eighth year Hawaii Island museums are collaborating to open their doors to other museums’ members. “Celebrating Museums Month” is designed to cross-promote these important local institutions. During the month of September, each Big Isle museum will provide free admission to the members of other participating institutions when a current museum membership card is shown. Some institutions also will be offering discounts on store items or tours to these members.
