The Clark County Historical Museum is hosting a private, behind-the-scenes, virtual tour of the museum that will show attendees how exhibits are created, share collections that are not usually on display and reveal a part of the museum that is blocked to the general public on May 6 at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the event are available for purchase on the museum’s website. Tickets for at-home streaming are $25 for non-members and $10 for museum members. A viewing link will be sent to those who purchase home streaming tickets.
Along with at-home streaming, the Kiggins Theatre is providing an exclusive in-person screening for the event that is $40 for non-members and $20 for members. There are only 75 seats available for this in-person showing due to COVID-19 safety regulations and tickets are selling fast.
“We thought to ourselves, why not make a fun program that gives people an opportunity to support us but also highlights something that is completely unique to us, which is the behind the scenes,” said executive director Bradley Richardson.
The museum is also hosting an auction before and during the event. Viewers can bid on exclusive experiences and items such as exhibit inspired gift baskets and a private museum tour. Bidding is open now and closes after the event. All proceeds go towards the museum.
Participants can also pick up a “midnight snack” courtesy of Chandelier Bakery between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. the day of the event.
“We’re about having some fun and at the same time giving people insight of what we do,” Richardson said. “We’re really excited and we felt like we built a really good program.”
