Mysterious Exhibit at Victor Valley Museum

6/18/2016 - Mysterious Exhibit at Victor Valley Museum

Exhibit opens: Saturday, June 18

A new special exhibit, Mysteries at the Museum, will open at the Victor Valley Museum in Apple Valley this Saturday, June 18. The exhibit features unfamiliar objects from the Museums collections and challenges visitors to figure out their functions using the scientific method. Some of the objects were totally familiar items a century ago; others may seem to be familiar but their function is less than obvious. Museum visitors are invited to observe, question, hypothesize, test, decide, and share their results by posting notes in the exhibit itself and by using social media.

This exhibit is fundamentally about observing and thinking about objects that arent immediately recognizable. said Museum Director Melissa Russo. We installed a similar special exhibit at the main museum in Redlands, and its proven to be very popular with visitors. Its especially engaging for families and groups because it sparks ideas, guesses, and figuring things out together.

The exhibit will continue through December, 2016.

Mysteries at the Museum and the County Museums other exciting events and exhibits reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors.
