The joy of discovery! We love when kids find a “treasure” at our Archaeology Dig. And the best part is answering that “But, what the heck is it?” look (swipe right)—helping kids connect to the story of each object they find in the sand. Join us this weekend as we look back at traditional stone crafts. #InternationalArchaeologyDay | 📸 : Ben Gibbs
Can I borrow that? Once the approvals came in and the boards were done (see previous two posts), our curator set out on research trips to look for and request the items we needed to tell the exhibition’s story.

She said yes! When our curators received this letter from #RBG back in 2016, we couldn’t wait to start working on the exhibition #notoriousRBG with the book’s authors, @irincarmon and @shanakn. More than two years later, we’re finally almost done! This Friday, we open the show to the public. We look forward to celebrating her life and work with everyone. Many thanks to Justice Ginsburg for believing in our vision.
