Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center hosts "The Insider Tour"

Posted on 2/18/2016

Washburn, N.D.-The Insider Tour, a rare after-hours opportunity to see behind-the-scenes at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, will be taking place Friday, March 4, at 7p.m., in Washburn. Normal museum admission will be charged, and because only a limited number can participate, an RSVP is required.

The Insider Tour, led by the Center's historic site supervisor and interpretive coordinator, will reveal how traditional and interactive exhibits are assembled, how art and artifacts are protected from damage, and much more. The tour culminates with a visit to the collections room, where many times more artifacts and art are stored than one sees in the exhibits.

"The big idea of this tour is that museums work to make stuff last forever. That includes both physical stuff, like our art and artifacts, and the ideas that go with them-our local culture and heritage," according to interpretive coordinator Robert Hanna.

Participants will even learn practical tips they can use at home, like how to better care for their own family heirlooms or the best height to hang a picture.

Participants can reserve their spot by calling 701-462-8535.

Admission is $7.50 for adults, $5 for adults with a North Dakota Parks and Recreation vehicle pass, and free for members of the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation. All students receive free admission as well thanks to a grant from the MDU Resources Foundation.

The event is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.
