Taking it On the Road… The Memorial and Museum make a splash at the NBC4/T44 Health & Fitness Expo

The Museum’s Education team wowed visitors with hands-on activities in our booth at the NBC4/T44 Health & Fitness Expo held January 18-19 at the Convention Center in Washington, DC. Hosted by our NBC4/Telemundo44 partners, the Expo is the second largest free event at the Convention Center. Over two days, hundreds of visitors stopped by the Memorial and Museum’s booth to try their hands at matching suspect mug shots, remembering details, participating in fingerprinting, and watching demonstrations such as extracting the DNA of a strawberry. Visitors also had the opportunity to purchase Museum admission vouchers at half-price. It was a great way to introduce people to the interactive and immersive nature of the Museum and to show our support for our NBC4/T44 partners.
