BYU museum sponsors free family home evening activity July 8

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University will host a family home evening open house where families and students can learn about new cultures, Monday, July 8, from 4 to 8 p.m.

Admission is free. Families and FHE groups of all ages will have the opportunity to come into the museum with a "passport” that allows them to move from station to station learning about different cultures. The passport stamps that are earned from the stations can be later exchanged with prizes.

“This FHE extravaganza only comes once a year,” Promotions Manager Samantha Gilbert said. “It’s a great way to get out of the house and learn something new while spending time with the family or student FHE group.”

The museum hosts events to serve the academic mission of BYU and care for the anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic collections in the custody of the university. It educates visitors by branching out in creative ways to benefit the BYU and local community. Current exhibits include “Mexican Masks: Concealing Faces, Revealing Expressions” and “Entwined: A Vibrant Heritage of the Modern Maya.”

For more information, visit facebook.com/byu.mpc or mpc.byu.edu . The museum is located at 100 E. 700 N. in Provo, and is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Saturday and Sunday.
