Renewed Interest in Cave Display at Ravalli County Museum
With the world watching the rescue effort of the boys trapped by rising flood waters in a chamber in the Tham Luang cave complex in Thailand, the current main exhibit at the Ravalli County Museum has become even more important. The "Illuminating Darkness" display, organized with the help of amateur cavers, shows some of the beauty and, of course, the danger in the numerous Montana caves in a non-claustrophobic way. The display has been open for viewing since spring.
But, there's more. On July 28, during Daly Days, a semi-sized "SimCave" will be parked in downtown Hamilton and for $3 for adults and $2 for kids, you can "climb, wiggle, crawl and scoot" through the artificial passages of the traveling exhibit. That one looks a little "tight" to me.
