Third Annual "Night at The Museum"

September 19, 2015

Join the Reading Public Museum as we celebrate a more simple time in entertainment when the Sunday funnies were the highlight of the week. Take a trip down memory lane to solve mysteries with Dick Tracy, fall in lust with the femme fatales like Miss Mizzou, laugh at Dagwood, cheer on Bugs as he woos Honey Bunny, and even examine the local weeks’ review with Leroy Gensler at the “Third Annual Night at The Museum.” This year, we will enjoy delicious food stations from Masterpiece Events and celebrate with tasty spirits, dance to jazz, network, and laugh at The Funnies: Vintage Comic Strips, 1940s-1960s inside the galleries of The Museum.

Continue to check our Web site for party updates. There are many opportunities to support the most enjoyable night out in Berks County. Contact Lindsay (610-371-5850 x230 or lindsay.crist@readingpublicmuseum.org) for details on attending or becoming a sponsor.
