Archaeology and Criminal Investigations 
Until September 18 

This interactive exhibition shines a light on the fascinating work of bioarchaeologists who use science to investigate and even solve crimes committed hundreds of years ago. But you won’t just be watching from the sidelines! This new exhibition lets you roll up your sleeves and get in on the action. Use tools, examine artifacts under a microscope, and analyze 3D bone reproductions. 

Solve the frozen mystery 
Weekends in July and August 

Here’s the case: a skeleton surrounded by artifacts is discovered by hikers in the Yukon. Use the scientific method and the very same techniques as bioarchaeologists to collect clues and piece together the hiker’s final moments. Who was this person? How did they die? What were their living conditions? Where were they going? Find the answers and solve the case. Ready to investigate? 

August is Archaeology Month 

August 7 - Experimental archaeology workshop 
Making a Swiss Army knife with stone tools used thousands of years ago: easy-peasy or mission impossible?

Plus, our archaeologist will give you the lowdown on the origins and techniques of experimental archaeology and the inside scoop on the museum’s upcoming research projects.
