New tablets add technology to Dubois Museum exhibitsAug 23, 2015 From staff reports
The Dubois Museum has installed two of the five electronic tablets purchased for the museum by the Dubois Museum Association.
The tablets have been placed in the "Geology: The Foundation of Dubois" and "Lifestyle of the Mountain Shoshone" exhibits.
The tablets have been placed in hand-made wooden stands that complement the existing exhibit cabinets.
The stands were built by Dean Sursland of Dubois and donated to the Dubois Museum.
The technology is completely new to the Dubois Museum. It will add hands-on approach to learning. The interactive nature of the tablets is very appealing to visitors to the museum, especially the younger visitors.
The information on them can easily be updated and changed to fit our ever changing displays.
The remaining tablets will be installed in exhibits titled "Our Upper Wind River Neighborhood," "Men of the Woods" and "Buffalo Culture of the Plains Indians" by Thanksgiving.
