The Mini-Time Machine is proud to participate in Blue Star Museums by offering free admission to active-duty military and their immediate family from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2011. For museum hours of operation visit www.theminitimemachine.org
As the stories of the magical creatures that inhabit the miniatures unfold, you alone must decide what path to take. Leave with a chronicle of your adventure. Come back and play again and create a different adventure each time.
To play: Pick up an Adventure Tour Gallery Guide Map in the lobby of The Mini-Time Machine. Read the directions and the start of the story on the map. Then you must decide where to go next. At the next miniature, take a page and read that story and decide where to go from there. Save your pages as you go- at the end you will receive a cover and brads to bind them into a keepsake book of your adventure. If you play correctly, you will have four pages for your book. Visit us again and make different choices, taking a new route to create a whole new story!
Included with museum admission while supplies last. Suitable for school-age children and adults. Small children will need adult assistance.
