9:00 am "Mythic Creatures" exhibit gallery open

For thousands of years, humans everywhere—sometimes inspired by living animals or even fossils—have brought mythic creatures to life in stories, songs and artwork. Today, these creatures– from the powerful dragon to the soaring phoenix– continue to thrill, terrify, entertain and inspire us.  Coming in May 2013, “Mythic Creatures” will take guests on a fantastic journey to discover the origins of  dragons, unicorns, mermaids and other folkloric creatures that have fascinated humans for centuries. This exhibition was produced by the American Museum of Natural History. Read more>>>

9:00 am "Spirits of the Passage" exhibit gallery open

This humbling exhibition explores the circumstances of the transatlantic slave trade, gleaning facts and artifacts from the archaeological excavation of a sunken slave ship.  Launching in February in conjunction with Black History Month, “Spirits of the Passage” includes real artifacts from slave ships as well as other period items.  Iron shackles (some small enough to restrain a child), ivory tusks and brass bowls are only a few of the objects guests will find. How did the trade get started, who was involved and why did it thrive? These are some of the important questions this exhibition seeks to answer.
