Free Family Saturdays at The High Desert Museum

Bend, Oregon – Free admission to the High Desert Museum, courtesy of Mid Oregon Credit Union, is scheduled for January 21 and February 25, 2017. The “Free Family Saturday” complimentary admission program supports the community with the opportunity to explore wildlife and living history right in Central Oregon’s backyard. The museum is located five minutes south from Bend on Highway 97. The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., including the Rimrock Café and Silver Sage Trading Store.

“Mid Oregon Credit Union’s generous support of two Free Family Saturdays this winter provides the community an opportunity to experience wildlife up close and engage with exhibits like the Buzzsaw Sharks of Long Ago,“ said High Desert Museum Executive Director Dana Whitelaw, PH.D.

A free shuttle system, operated by Wanderlust Tours, will run from Morning Star Christian School, 19741 Baker Road, to the Museum and back on both free days. For more information about exhibits, wildlife encounters, living history performances, music, and tours, visit the Museum’s website at
