As the fourth largest city in the nation, Houston has a lot to offer, and the Houston Astros, our hometown baseball team, is extending some southern hospitality to attendees of the 2011 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo™ by offering exclusive discount tickets. Minute Maid Park, located in thriving downtown (just down the street from conference headquarters at the George R. Brown Convention Center), is certainly a sight to see for anyone visiting, and enjoying America’s favorite past time when the Houston Astros take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at these discounted prices cannot be beat!
Enter the park through what was once Houston’s Union Station, and cheer on the Astros…a home team homerun or win will send the stadium train, which pays homage to the site’s history as a former train depot, moving along its 800 foot track. And, as long as temperatures aren’t soaring, the retractable roof will be open so that fans can take in the sights and sounds of the game with downtown towering around them.
Games start at 7:05 p.m. on Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24, and 1:05 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25. Prices are low as $8 for a View Deck II Seat, normally $13, and $23 for a Field Box Seat, normally $41.
This offer is open to AAM visitors and local museum friends alike! To purchase your tickets, log on to www.astros.com/aam, and enter the password: AAM. For group ticket purchases of 20 or more, or for more information, contact Jeff Troncoso at 713.259.8318 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
