Museum of Peoples, Cultures offers unique date night activity Jan. 21

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University will host the classic date night “Culture-Me-Mine” Friday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. at the museum, located at 100 E. 700 N. in Provo. 

Tickets for “Culture-Me-Mine” are $10 a couple and will be available for purchase at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18.

To start off the night there will be a tour of the museum’s current exhibitions, “New Lives: Building Community at Fourmile Ruin” and “Beneath Your Feet: Discovering Utah Valley Archaeology,” followed by a game of “Couple Feud,” a scavenger hunt and refreshments.  The night will end with a clay activity where couples can put their newfound knowledge of Anasazi pottery and Fremont figurines to use. 

 “‘Culture-Me-Mine’ is a great date activity because it’s out of the ordinary,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the museum. “There aren’t many places that do a date-night quite like this one.”

For more information, visit mpc.byu.edu, or contact the museum at (801) 422-0020 or e-mail mpc@byu.edu. The museum is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed Saturday and Sunday.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
