MPC hosts “Survivor Date Night” Sept. 17

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University is hosting its annual “Survivor Date Night” Friday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. The event will challenge couples to use brain and brawn and see if they have what it takes to survive in the ancient world.

Tickets for the date night are $10 a couple and are available at the WSC Information Desk. The museum is located at 100 E. 700 N. in Provo.

“‘Survivor’ is a great date because it’s so interactive,” says Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC. “It’s especially fun to do as a group date because you compete against other couples to win the prize.”

The night will begin with couples divided into “tribes” who will take a tour of the museum’s current exhibits: “New Lives: Building Community at Fourmile Ruin” and “Beneath Your Feet: Discovering the Archaeology of Utah Valley.” These tours will help the tribes prepare for the evening’s challenges, which include a timed sand pit excavation, a race to reconstruct broken pottery and a round of trivia questions.

The top three tribes — whose minds and skills work together the best to conquer each trial — will receive prizes.

For more information about the date night or the museum, call (801) 422-0020 or visit mpc.byu.edu/.
