Find 'Treasure!' at the Museum of Arts and Culture



'Treasure' is a word that stirs the imaginations of children and adults of all ages: dazzling visions of gold, silver, jewels and other precious objects.

'Treasure!' the new exhibit at the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, now until May 15, explores the history of treasure and treasure hunting. It also examines the technology used to look for it, both old and new, and the people obsessed with finding it.

Rarely seen treasures from the museum's collections will complement this nationally acclaimed exhibit, and a hands-on Conservation Lab will demonstrate methods that museums use to restore and preserve materials and artifacts. You can also try out treasure hunting tools, and practice panning for gold at 'Treasure!'

Starting in late February, visitors to the museum will be able to see some local treasures on display, loaned by Spokane residents who are graciously sharing important family memorabilia and memories with our community.

Go to www.northwestmuseum.org for more information.
