"Archaeology Zone: Discovering Treasures from Playgrounds to Palaces"

The Jewish Museum , Central Park Thursday January 31 2013 11:00 - 20:00
This exhibition introduces youngsters to ideas about why and how cultures develop. It features a dig's worth of interactive elements: Tots can piece vessels together, weigh and examine replicas of artifacts, decipher the meaning of symbols in a mosaic and don a costume reminiscent of Indiana Jones's garb. Along the way, they learn about the tools and procedures archaeologists employ after they bring home their loot.
