Join us for a day of discovery as part of Ohio Archaeology Month and national Earth Science Week. Come learn about the fascinating worlds of these sciences and related careers. Meet Museum curators and staff; members of Museum-associated societies such as the Cleveland Geological Society and the Micromineral Society; as well as representatives from the Cleveland Archaeological Society and local universities.

See how tools are chipped from stone, and try primitive technologies such as atlatl throwing, cordage making and pump drilling. Bring in up to six of your artifacts, fossils, minerals, and rocks for identification. Check out exhibits of archaeological and geological specimens. Participate in family friendly, hands-on activities in the Smead Discovery Center. Dig through the Museum Store for related books, educational toys, games, clothing and other finds. There will be something for the whole family!

Free with Museum admission.
