The traveling exhibition Treasure! is an educational tool for museums and science centers. It tours nationally. The exhibition explores the history of treasures and treasure hunting. Conceptually, it also explores the ideas of seeking and finding. It also dives deeper into the technology employed in treasure hunting, as well as treasure hunters.
During a visitor’s time in the exhibition, Treasure! invites patrons to explore its seven thematic areas: underwater treasure, treasures in the attic, buried treasure, gold rushes, protecting treasure, treasure in popular culture, and the modern treasure hunt.
While over a dozen hands-on activities allow the visitor to explore tools of treasure hunting, there are more goodies to discover. Actual artifacts from shipwrecks and other treasure sites make this exhibit one to witness when it comes to a venue in your area!
In addition to design support, Flutter & Wow also provided fabrication of this 5,000 square feet traveling exhibition. From the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture in Washington to the Sloan Museum at Courtland Center in Michigan, this exhibit has toured all over the United States.
