Fifth Annual AIA-MPM Archaeology Fair – March 7 and 8, 2014

The Fifth Annual Milwaukee Archaeology Fair will be held March 7 and 8, 2014 at the Milwaukee Public Museum. Jointly sponsored by the AIA-Milwaukee Society and the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Fair will feature numerous hands-on, family-friendly demonstrations, exhibits and activities designed to make the world of archaeology come alive.
