Fay Perkins 1981 Gallery

| Featured Exhibit | Permanent Gallery

The Fay Perkins 1981 Gallery is the largest of the museum’s exhibition halls. The center of this space is an actual archaeological site, originally excavated during the 1930s. The display is meant to show the various stages of an archaeological excavation, with the suggestion that as the site is revealed, time rewinds.

On the far wall of the Perkins Gallery is Uncovering the Past: Archaeology of Lost City. They tell the story of how Lost City was revealed in the 20th century. Several important people involved in the dig and some of the objects they unearthed, appear in this narrative.

This area also features a What Is It? case, which challenges visitors to identify rare and puzzling objects.
