What's in the Basement?
I remember my grandma had a "bunker" for lack of better terms as a part of her basement where old books, nick-knacks and random items she and grandpa couldn't part with ended up. I spent hours feeding my curiosity and inquisitiveness checking out the ordinary and interesting items in the bunker.
What then if you're a museum who has more than 1 Million collected items and you only have space to show 1/% of them in the exhibit halls? Where do you store all that stuff ? In a VERY large basement!
To cater to the curriosity of many (or perhaps the few) the Utah Museum of Natural History located at 1390 E Presidents Circle on the UofU campus is hosting their once a year "What's in the Basement" tomorrow, October 11, 2008 from 9:30am-5pm.
It includes hands-on activities for kids.
