Cost reduced from $70,000 for pandemic special. Treasure! explores the history of treasure and treasure hunting, the technology employed in hunting treasure, as well as the people and personalities that hunt for treasure-including your visitors. The educational purpose of the exhibition is to investigate these key ideas: What is treasure? Who hunts for treasure? Why do they hunt treasure? How do people hunt for treasure? On a personal level, the exhibit also provokes the question, what do you treasure? Treasure! has six thematic areas, including underwater treasure, treasures in the attic, buried treasure, gold rushes, protecting treasure, treasure in popular culture, and the modern treasure hunt. The hands-on activities allow the visitor to try tools of treasure hunting and investigate treasures. Special exhibit features include actual artifacts from shipwrecks and other treasure sites.
