Science and History unite in this exciting archaeology program.  Students become archaeologists as they search for artifacts and excavate a mock “pit” with the tools and techniques used in archaeology.  Students collaborate as they piece together reproduction artifacts in a field laboratory.  Inside the museum, students explore archaeology via trap doors that reveal 300 years of history!  Sessions are two hours in duration.

Admission: $6 per person

Weekdays throughout October, 9am-3pm
