Dubois Museum Introduces Interactive Tablets in Two Exhibits

The Dubois Museum: Wind River Historical Center has installed two of the five tablets purchased for the Museum by the Dubois Museum Association. The tablets have been placed in, “Geology: The Foundation of Dubois” and “Lifestyle of the Mountain Shoshoni” exhibits.

The tablets have been placed in handmade wooden stands that complement the existing exhibit cabinets.  The stands were built by Dean Sursland of Dubois and donated to the Dubois Museum.

This 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.  To learn more about the Dubois Museum and other Fremont County Museums go to
