ASU Museum to Host Earthquake Exhibit

JONESBORO, AR - The Arkansas State University Museum in Jonesboro will host a new exhibit entitled Earthquake! beginning June 21.

The grand opening for the exhibit is free and open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m.  The exhibit includes the history and science of the New Madrid Seismic Zone and provides hints on earthquake readiness.  Visitors can jump to make "earthquake" waves register on a seismograph, make block buildings that tumble on a "shake table," interact with a computer kiosk, and more.  Earthquake readiness expert Danny Honnoll will also be on hand for the event to present an earthquake safety program.

The Jonesboro Fire Department will also be on hand at the opening ceremonies, which will include a film, ribbon cutting, prizes and refreshments.

Summer hours for the museum are Tuesday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
