FINAL DAYS OF TREE HOUSES, TOYS, AND EDWARD CURTIS EXHIBITS AT MUSEUM OF THE ROCKIES
Bozeman, MT— Three popular traveling exhibits will have their last day at the Museum of the Rockies this Sunday, May 10. Tree Houses: Look Who’s Living in the Trees!, Toys: The Inside Story, and Edward Sherriff Curtis: The Artist as Ethnographer will all be closing and moving onto other museums.
Children have thoroughly enjoyed the Tree Houses and Toys exhibits. This weekend will be their last chance to explore an indoor tree house, view tree houses from around the world, find signs of wildlife, and peek into the hidden tree homes of animals. In the Toys exhibit they can learn about the mechanisms that make many common toys work.
Edward Sherriff Curtis (1868-1952) is internationally recognized as one of the great photographic artists of the American west. Visitors only have a few more days to see these photos on loanfrom the Capital Group Foundation in Los Angeles, many of which have never been seen before by the public.
The next traveling exhibit opening at the Museum of the Rockies is Treasure, on display from May 23 to Sept. 7, 2009. It features treasure from shipwrecks and discusses all the different types of treasure that exist.
The Museum of the Rockies hours are 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, and 12:30 pm to 5 pm on Sundays until Friday May 22 when summer hours begin.
