Left Behind – Many Days in the Making...

It's amazing what unexpected treasures are uncovered when exhibits are moved (and we finally get to see what lies behind the Littlewoods cave!)

Here's a short list of some of the discoveries made over the last week:

  • Mounds of plastic potatoes, clams and more – enough to feed a small (pretend) army

  • Tons of tessellation pieces and pattern blocks that haven't seen the light of day in years

  • A wallet misplaced 2 years ago (and promptly returned)

  • A missing Museum toolbox – a well-timed find!

  • A long lost caterpillar finger puppet, modeled here by Arielle

  • And behind the Iway bridge, a bounty of tools – 33 bridge mending plates and 15 wrenches, to be exact!

It's incredible how things can travel - maybe exhibit elves at work? Now if we could only find all of those missing socks...
