Test Your Survival Skills in the Interactive Exhibit, American Adventure, Mercer Museum, Doylestown, PA

 

 

Doylestown, Pennsylvania, February 2, 2016 - The Mercer Museum's latest exhibit, American Adventure, puts visitors into the shoes of the original American colonists and challenges them to survive for one year, in this realistic role-play adventure. Sound easy? Think again…
 
Of the original 104 settlers who arrived in the spring of 1607, fewer than 40 survived the first twelve months. Visitors will wind their way through interactive galleries set within a challenging 2500 square foot maze, while struggling to overcome demands on their knowledge and decision-making skills.  The goal is to make it past more than two dozen tests spread out over the four seasons. In each gallery, participants will engage in hands-on activities like navigating the Rocky Falls Climbing Wall, flying over the water in the Ship to Shore Zip Slide and discovering native plants and animals in the Wilderness Survival Challenge.  With a little luck, and most likely a few attempts, visitors may avoid slipping into the danger zone where their next decision could be life or death.
 
In conjunction with the exhibit, a collection of early colonial tools from the Mercer Museum’s collection will be on display. 
 
American Adventure was created by Seattle-based Minotaur Mazes and the Virginia Living Museum and is locally sponsored by Visit Bucks County.

 

The exhibit runs through June 12, 2016 at the Pine Street & Scout Way, Doylestown, PA. Times are Mon-Sat, 10 am -5 pm, Sun, Noon-5 pm. Admission is $14 adults, $12 seniors, $8 youth.
