About the exhibit:

"Adventures in Art: From Pyramids to Printing Presses" puts YOU in the role of archaeologist and explorer as you uncover mysteries of Ancient Egypt and learn about life after the Dark Ages. From the pyramids to the printing press, the Buell Children's Museum is inviting visitors to discover the artistic and technological advances made through history. 

  • Join the Buell Expedition Crew to uncover secrets of the pyramids! Translate hieroglyphics and find all the missing artifacts to earn a piece of the Pharaoh's treasure!
  • Sculpt and paint your own replica of ancient relics to take piece of history home with you!
  • Learn about the art of medieval warfare!
  • Make a stained glass window to catch the light, just like in a cathedral!
  • Finish your journey through art history with modern glass blowing like Dale Chihuly! You can even make a "glass" sculpture to be part of our community installation piece!
