Up Close & Personal with Otzi the Iceman

March 24, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Science Happy Hour, featuring Gary Staab of Staab Studios

He was stalked, attacked, and left to die alone. Murdered more than 5,000 years ago, Otzi the Iceman is Europe’s oldest known natural mummy. Miraculously preserved in glacial ice, his remarkably intact remains continue to provide scientists, historians, and archeologists with groundbreaking discoveries about a crucial time in human history. In order to protect him from contamination, this extraordinary body has been locked away, out of reach, in a frozen crypt—until now. Spend an evening with renowned artist and paleosculptor Gary Staab, who along with the NOVA television crew received rare access into the freezer.

Science Happy Hour tickets are $10. Museum Members receive 50% off the ticket price.

Science Happy Hour takes place on Friday, March 24th at 6:00 p.m.
