Alaska’s Whitney and Valdez Museums Celebrate with a Scavenger Hunt
December 10, 2012
The Maxine & Jesse Whitney Museum and the Valdez Museum & Historical Archive teamed up to bring National Archaeology Day to Valdez, Alaska. A family-friendly scavenger hunt was held between the two museums. Kids and their parents enjoyed seeking artifacts from their photos contrasted with the historical artifact. A mosaic tile making project was part of the festivities at the Whitney. It was a wonderful way to spend a blustery Saturday afternoon!
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
