Jul 02, 2015 11:22AM ● Published by J. Chambless

Every Tuesday in August, the Delaware Museum of Natural History is partnering with Artisans' Bank to lower admission prices to $2 per person during Two Dollar Tuesdays. Visitors are invited to explore the wonders of the natural world at the Museum for $2 on Aug. 4, 11, 18, and 25, courtesy of Artisans' Bank. 

Admission includes entry to the museum's special exhibit, "Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders," where visitors can explores the truth, myths, and mysteries surrounding some of nature's most curious creatures -- many of them alive and on view. Resembling an old-fashioned circus sideshow, this exhibit will captivate those daring enough to enter with tales of the deceptive and treacherous techniques these insects can wield on unsuspecting predators.

Elsewhere in the museum, galleries showcase Delaware's only dinosaurs on permanent display, a life-sized model of a giant squid, a coral reef walkover, an African watering hole, and more.
