In the Dark
January 18-May 13, 2018
The dark -- a place of mystery.
Sometimes scary, but always intriguing, darkness beckons exploration and represents the unknown. But it's also a natural evolutionary selective pressure that has caused plants and animals to adapt to ecosystems like caves, the deep sea, the forest at night, and underneath the ground.
Since prehistoric times, humans have sought to find utility in darkness, and have invented ways to acclimate to dark conditions. Visiting In the Dark, guests experience and explore these mysteries via electronic, mechanical and computer interactives, immersive dioramas and lifelike models.
The Cowgirl who Became a Justice: Sandra Day O'Connor
June 28-November 4, 2018
Prior to Sandra Day O'Connor, no other female in the United States had been given as heavy and as public a yoke to carry in representing women, the West and in turn the best interests of the nation. President Ronald Reagan appointed Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to the United States Supreme Court in 1981; she was the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court since its inception in the late 1700s.
The Cowgirl Who Became a Justice: Sandra Day O'Connor was organized by the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
