January 2019

Archaeologist for an Afternoon: Make a Split Twig Figurine! Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 3:30pm-5:00pm

We hope you can join us for a fun after-school opportunity to learn about archaeology both in AND outside Alabama on Wednesday, January 16! Drop in anytime between 3:30pm and 5:00pm to tour the museum, learn about the importance of archaeological preservation, and make your own split twig figurine out of pipe cleaners! This activity is ideal for ages 7 and up. Admission to the event and museum is FREE.

Split twig figurines are some of the most fascinating artifacts found in the Grand Canyon area of the United States. They were made from willow twigs and appear to represent bighorn sheep and mule deer. Many of the figurines are thousands of years old!

January Family Day: Ice Age Archaeology! Saturday, January 19, 2019, 11am-2pm

Join us at the USA Archaeology Museum for our January family day event, "Ice Age Archaeology!" Stop by anytime between 11am and 2pm on Saturday, January 19th for fun craft activities. Kids can make their own wooly mammoth, throwing spear, or rock art! The Museum's permanent and temporary exhibit galleries will also be open for self-guided tours, so it would also be a great time to visit the Museum if you are unable to stop by during the week! Admission to the event and Museum, as always, is FREE. We hope to see you there!
