Museum guide produced by Hollister Creative for Mummies of the World exhibit featured on ‘Jeopardy’
If you’re the competitive type, don’t watch “Jeopardy!” with the Hollister Creative team on Monday, October 25. The brainacs at Hollister Creative will win. The Philadelphia area creative services and marketing communication firm wrote and designed the museum guide for Mummies of the World. Mummies of the World is a museum exhibition that is touring the United States. The exhibit will be a featured category on the quiz show ”Jeopardy!” in October. Program host Alex Trebek is familiar with Mummies of the World, as he celebrated the opening of the exhibition at the California Science Center at a VIP event this summer. Mummies of the World features a never-before-seen collection of naturally and intentionally preserved mummies. The collection includes ancient mummies and important artifacts from Asia, Oceania, South America, Europe and ancient Egypt, dating back 6,500 years.
Hollister Creative produced the standards-based learning guide for Mummies of the World for the exhibition’s presenter, American Exhibitions, Inc. The 20-page learning guide enhances student interest in the scientific and cultural study of mummies. It includes hands-on experiments and educational activities to deepen understanding of the scientific method, as well as historical and cultural research.
Hollister Creative provided the museum guide as a PDF for viewing online, downloading or printing, and as an e-book. American Exhibitions is making the guide available in all these forms to museums and science centers that host the exhibition. This educational tool is making a splash all over the United States.
The exhibition will tour major cities in the United States over the next three years. It travels next to the Milwaukee Public Museum, opening there on December 17. An opening at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is anticipated in June 2011.
