EDINBURG — Summer Nights at the Museum will conclude in the River Crossroads exhibit of the signature Rio Grande Legacy exhibition at the Museum of South Texas History on Thursday, July 6.
Activities will begin at 7 p.m. starting with the MOSTHistory Puppet Theater, the main attraction of the night, presenting “I Used to be a Star” in the Courtyard Gallery. Guests can watch the show while enjoying free popcorn. After the puppet show, guests will receive a Find Me If You Can game card to begin their adventure in the River Crossroads gallery. Find characters from the puppet show to complete your Find Me If You Can game card and enter for a nightly raffle drawing.
River Crossroads, the third and final exhibit of the signature Rio Grande Legacy exhibition, will come alive with hands-on activities, historical reenactors and animated demonstrators showcasing the heritage of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico during the 20th century. Guests will learn how trains, planes and automobiles connected and improved the economic development of the Rio Grande Valley and surrounding communities. Another fun and educational way to discover more about this region is through costumed interpreters portraying farmers, train conductors and soldiers from the Mexican Revolution and WWII. Hands-on activities will show guests how agricultural irrigation affected the Rio Grande Valley including the water management that propelled the fruit processing industry. And, new this year: Blast From The Past gallery, a showcase of audio visual equipment from the late 20th century such as 8-track, cassette, record and VHS players.
