Cuts to the USU Eastern Prehistoric MuseumвЂ™s Operating Budget in 2010 and 2011 are finally being felt.
Rising costs for supplies and services are making it necessary to increase the admission fees.
вЂњWe tried to hold off increasing the fees as long as possible,вЂќ Marketing Director Christine Trease said. вЂњUnfortunately, it is the only way we can continue to provide the community with new and exciting exhibits and events.вЂќ
Individual admission rates will increase one dollar, while family admission rate will increase by two dollars. The new prices take effect May 25.
Even with these increases, the Prehistoric MuseumвЂ™s admission rates remain below the national average in the $10 to $20 range. An even better deal is the Prehistoric MuseumвЂ™s family membership, which is $40.00 per year.
