Elephants! exhibit to open Saturday

Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum will open the doors to the traveling exhibit "Elephants!" starting Saturday, May 27.

The exhibit, which has taken over a week to set up with the help of museum staff and volunteers, will cover the 50-million-year history of the elephant through an interactive adventure.

The tour will explore the evolution of the elephant from the Ice Age to present day by looking at fossils and the importance of the elephant to cultures around the world.
"Elephants!" will run until Sunday, Sept. 3. For more information on the exhibit, contact the Sternberg Museum at (785) 628-4286 or visit www.fhsu.edu/sternberg.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays. Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors (60+) and youth (4-12), and $3 for FHSU students with ID. Admission is free for museum members and children age 3 and under.
