Exhibits

Curiosity Circles

Join us for a new evening event series, Curiosity Circles!  View our newest exhibit, Weapons: Beyond the Blade, and stay to unpack your experiences with and perceptions of weapons with your fellow community members.

Archaeology Day

Join us for Archaeology Day and test your archaeology know-how. In conjunction with our new temporary exhibition, Weapons: Beyond the Blade, the special theme for this year’s event is non-firearm weapons. We’ll feature interactive programming on personal weaponry as an integral part of human history and evolution, and as emblems of power, meaning, beauty, and ingenuity.

Up Close and Personal Tours

Join us on a guided voyage to learn how the people of the South Pacific used material from land and sea (shark teeth, really?) to create beautiful and powerful weapons.
