The evening begins with a guided tour of SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology. Then, through a hands-on activity, learn to "read" the features of a human skull to determine: age, sex, physical trauma and/or illness.
PLEASE NOTE: The activity involves replica human skulls cast from real investigations. Personal discretion is advised.
