Date/Time
Thursday, May 1st 2014 - 9:00 am - 8:00 pm

Location
National Music Museum

Do something different on your next Friday date night. Take in the National Music Museum (NMM), which will soon be open until 8:00pm. Friday admission, as always, is free.

Starting May 1st and going through August, the NMM will be open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm; and Thursdays and Fridays, 9:00am to 8:00pm; and Sundays, 1:00-5:00pm.

For a romantic Friday evening, have dinner at one of Vermillion’s great restaurants, followed by a visit to the Museum, and later a local winery. Or hit the Museum first, then take in dinner and a movie. Or make it a full culture weekend: stay overnight at a local hotel and visit the Museum, the campus of the University of South Dakota, the W. H. Over Museum, Spirit Mound, river scenery, and more.

If Sunday is your free day, relax: take an afternoon tour through the Museum and enjoy local dining before or after.

With 1,200 rare items on display (out of a collection of more than 15,000), the National Music Museum is a must-see. “Get up close to some of the greatest instruments in the world, from the ‘Mona Lisa’ of the cellos — the world’s oldest, the Amati ‘King ’ — to newer items like Bob Dylan’s or Elvis Presley’s guitars,” says Museum director Cleveland Johnson.

The extended hours will also coincide with Museum events like the upcoming ‘Bike Music.’ Sound artist ‘Johnnyrandom,’ recently featured on National Public Radio, will be on hand at the Museum’s Open House (during USD’s commencement weekend), May 9th-10th, 2014. Johnnyrandom’s techno song
