Explorers! is an exhilarating new in-house exhibition at the Boonshoft Museum marking their special 125th anniversary.
An important focus coming to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in 2018 is anniversaries, and this January we’re commemorating a pretty historic event. The Dayton Public Library Museum (as it was then called) was originally founded 125 years ago. To celebrate our anniversary, guests are invited to join us on an exciting journey into the past. Explorers!, an exhilarating new in-house exhibition marking that special anniversary, is a trip throughout the far-flung corners of the earth, from Japan and Egypt to the Phillipines, Ecuador, and the American Plains.
Opening January 27 at 12:00 noon in the Main Exhibit Hall of the Museum, guests visiting Explorers! will embark on a journey into the history and culture of extraordinary destinations. The selection of objects from the Society’s vast in-house collection of artifacts reflects generations of worldwide exploration. Hands-on, interactive displays are designed to actively engage families in learning more about science and our natural world. Patrons will:
Visitors can stamp their passport in each area, and even trek to an area designed for our youngest explorers.
