The Zymoglyphic Museum in San Mateo will be OPEN to visitors this coming weekend!
Saturday, May 10 - 11 AM to 5 PM
Sunday, May 11 - 12 noon to 4 PM
Our arachnid interns have been scurrying around, polishing the
cobwebs to a nice dusty gleam in preparation for swinging open the
rust-laden doors and letting in the bright spring sunshine! The
resident crustaceans are preening their exoskeletons for your
viewing pleasure, the mermaids are gaily sprucing themselves up, and
little eyeballs are popping up like mushrooms everywhere!
It is about a 15 minute walk from the Hillsdale Caltrain station,
should you prefer to go that route.
Admission is free!
