Those interested in touring the museum exhibits either before or after the program presentation at 1 Pm can do so for the discounted rate of $3.00 per person. This program will cover everything from deer travels to vegetation; side dishes to a main course which features the holiday guest of honor. A perfect way to kick-off the start of rifle season in Pennsylvania!
