The Quincy Museum at 1601 Maine Street is offering two educational classes in July for students aged 10 and up.  Students can learn about Geology during the week of July 11 and Archaeology during the week of July 18th. From July 11 through 15 students will learn all about how rocks and minerals are formed in the earth, how to identify different specimens, and will be able to start their very own rock collection.

During the week of July 18 to 22, the museum will offer an Archaeology class, also for students aged 10 and above. Attendees at this class will learn about the different types of archaeology, learn how a dig is performed and learn to identify various types of artifacts.

Boy Scouts who enroll for either of these two classes will be able to complete the requirements for their Geology and/or Archaeology merit badges.

Classes will be held from 10 am until noon each day. A class fee of $20 for museum members and $30 for non-members will be charged for each student. Enrollment is limited to 15 students per week. To enroll your student in these fun and educational classes, call the Quincy Museum office at 217-224-7669.
