Hundreds of kids attend history event in Stevens Point

Posted:

The Museum of Natural History at the U-W Stevens Point campus held its annual "Collection Crawl" Saturday.

More than 600 kids walked through the museum to collect stamps on paper passports at various booths as they got a brief history lesson about artifacts around the globe.

Directors of the museum said the event is a success every year and is a good way to have the public learn about history.

"It's really a chance for the museum to show what we do and for the public to come in and take a look at the university and take a look at the collection and get a better handle on what the university and what the students do," director of the museum Ray Reser said.

After the kids filled up their passports they were able to choose a prize from the museum gift shop.
