Burlington folk to get their hands on curious items

November 9, 2012 by  

This weekend, the 150 Hands-On Mystery Objects is being held for the 12th year and will feature 150 objects for guests to examine and handle while attempting to figure what they do and what they are. This is a fun and entertaining way to learn while pretending to be a detective, especially for guests of a curious nature.

This educational opportunity provides people with a number of thingamajigs, including, antiques, toys, and clever devices, to learn about. This event is classed by the museum as a ‘puzzling’ event while everyone in the family tries to figure out what the whatchamacallits really are. As well as many of the objects open for exploration, the museum has posted helpful clues, although guests may have to think hard about them.

As part of the day, there will be an ‘Object in a Box’ challenge. Guests will be asked to look in the box and try to guess what the object is, plus there will be a Mystery Object Lightning Round, loosely based on the game show, which will require quick thinking on the part of the participants. Many other intriguing challenges will be available for people of all ages.

Flyer printing, postcard printing, and poster printing may have been used to advertise and promote this event to the public. Admission is $5 per person and parking is free.

The 150 Hands-On Mystery Objects will be happening on tomorrow, November 10, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Logic Puzzle Museum located at 533 Milwaukee Avenue in burlington, Wisconsin.
