2. I am not sure if I want to be a member. Can I come once and than decide?
Yes! After you have paid us a visit, you can put all the money spent on admission towards an annual membership! Just make sure you hang on to your receipt and visit the admissions desk before leaving for the day! If you think you will visit us two more times in the next year, our annual membership will definitely pay for itself. Remember, you must convert your admission into a membership on the day of your visit to be able to have your admission funds put towards the Friends membership.
