JUNIOR ARCHAEOLOGY FAMILY DAY
The Museum of the Rockies is offering families the opportunity to learn more about archeology together. Join the Museum of the Rockies and Project Archaeology for a fun hands-on exploration of the science behind archaeology. Investigate weaponry advancements from projectile points of stone to projectile points of steel. Experiment with native plants to create cordage. Create some traditional beadwork, throw a spear, and hear some Native American singers. Discover how archaeologists prepare for a dig, how flintknappers make tools, and much more.
Junior Archaeology Family Day will be held Saturday, April 25, from 10 am until noon. It is free for Museum members or free with paid Museum admission.
The Museum of the Rockies is open during the winter and spring from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, and 12:30 pm to 5 pm on Sundays.
