The Kalamazoo Valley Museum’s Summer Hands-On Happenings series is based on the theme of the new traveling exhibit, “Treasure.”

The exhibit runs from June 16 to August 26 and explores the history of treasures and treasure hunting, the technology that enhances it, and the people and personalities who hunt for treasure.

The Summer Hands-On Happenings program, "In Search of Lost Treasures," takes place on Wednesdays from 1 to 4 p.m. beginning on June 27 and ending on August 15. There is no session on July 4.

The June 27 session, “Holding On to Treasure,” is about the ways that treasures are protected.

Pirate-related crafts like eye patches and treasure maps will be created during the July 11 session, “Pirates and Their Treasures."

The July 18 event, “Treasures of the Sea,” is all about mysterious treasures waiting to be found under the sea.
