•COST: no cost, though you may want to bring a lunch or some $$ for coffee and pizza if we send out
•ID: If you plan on attending, please e-mail me your name and anyone coming with you. I need a list for campus security. No car info needed. Please bring a valid gov't issue ID (driver's license or passport) to show at the gate.
•PARKING: Space behind the museum is limited, so the guard will probably direct you to a parking spot along Steamboat road leading to the museum.
•ACCOMMODATIONS: No advance arrangements have been made, so you're on your own. If you're coming from a distance, there are a number of reasonably priced hotels within easy distance in King's Point or Great Neck. Just Google "King's Point Hotels and check out the map. The Andrew Hotel at Great Neck offers a 10% discount to USMMA visitors- just tell them at the desk.
•WHAT TO BRING: yourself, any interested friends or family, and any models you'd like to show off. Model sales and swaps are allowed, so if you have any second-hands, bring them, along with empty boxes, packing materials and enough change to get you through. Cameras are also welcome- no restrictions on photos!
•TABLES: The Museum will have tables available. No need to reserve in advance.
Any questions, please e-mail me and I'll do my best to answer. This is a great chance to visit the museum and meet up with fellow collectors at the same time!
