The three-night family adventure ends July 14

EDINBURG - Summer Nights at the Museum will conclude Thursday, July 14, in the River Crossroads gallery of the signature Rio Grande Legacy exhibition at the Museum of South Texas History.

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 during any of three performances 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 gallery of the signature Rio Grande Legacy exhibition, will become 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. Some will portray soldiers from the 1910 Mexican Revolution and World War II. Hands-on activities will show guests how agricultural irrigation affected the Rio Grande Valley including the water management that propelled the fruit processing industry.
