See the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum in a new light at their “Night at the Museum” open house.
During the open house, the museum’s collections will be showcased, and visitors can explore the museum’s artifacts, fossils, tools and minerals through hands-on display stations.
Additionally, “Night at the Museum” will have finger weaving demonstrations, where participants learn how to weave a complicated-looking but simple-to-create pattern using only their fingers; chain mail demonstrations, showcasing the basics of making armor consisting of metal rings linked to form a mesh; and prehistoric clay demonstrations, showing how to create woodland and Mississippian pottery techniques using primitive tools.
Guests will also be able to make a craft and take home with them.
