“Expedition Georgia” exhibit will open at Georgia Southern Museum on April 1
A new interactive exhibit at the Georgia Southern Museum will give visitors the opportunity to negotiate a maze that celebrates the state’s ecological diversity.
‘Expedition Georgia” will open on Tuesday, April 1. The exhibit will focus on the Atlantic Ocean, the Coastal Plain, the Piedmont and the Mountains, which are the four major habitats found in Georgia.
‘Visitors will find their way through the maze while discovering activities, graphics and information about each unique habitat,” said Brent Tharp, the director of the Museum. ‘Themed mazes are good interactive learning tools that combine the tasks of physically exploring the maze with the mental interaction of learning the curriculum.
‘The result is an exhibit that will educate and entertain visitors of all ages.”
‘Expedition Georgia” is presented in cooperation with Georgia Southern’s Botanical Garden. Visitors to the exhibit will receive an information packet and explorers kit for the Garden.
‘We encourage everyone who visits ‘Expedition Georgia’ to further enhance their experience by taking the time to explore the Botanical Garden, where they will encounter many elements of the exhibit,” Tharp said.
The admission fee for ‘Expedition Georgia” is $4.50 per person for adults and $3 per person for children. Groups of 10 or more people that make reservations will be admitted for $2 per person. There is no admission fee for members of the Museum.
Located in the Rosenwald Building on Southern Drive, the Museum is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
