The Prehistoric Museum presents Making Sense of Archaeology exhibition by the Utah Division of State History. The exhibition opens to the public Saturday March 30, 2019 in the Special Exhibitions Gallery.
The exhibit is an educational hands-on scientific and historical experience specifically tailored for people who are blind or have low vision. It features 3D printed objects that represent important specimens, and artifacts from Utah. Objects are imbedded with 3D printed braille and audio content. Participants are able to read and listen to a short history of the object while touching the objects on display. It is the first fully 3D printed traveling archaeological exhibit. It was produced by the Public Archaeology Program Utah Division of State History, in partnership with the Utah School for the Blind, Utah STEM Action Center, and the Utah Blind Institute
“Utah houses the largest braille library west of Mississippi River and people who are blind travel here from all over the country to learn how to utilize their other senses to live and engage in the world around them. Museums are some of the best sources for hands-on learning.“ ~ Shawn Lambert exhibit producer and Public Archaeologist for the Utah Division of State History.
The Prehistoric Museum features fossils and artifacts from Utah. This special exhibition is located on the second floor of the museum and runs from Saturday March 30 through Saturday May 11, 2019. The museum is open Monday through Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. General admission rates apply.
