Camp Lawton exhibit coincides with busy days for GSU Museum
Iron eating utensils are among the artifacts on display at the exhibit.
It's impossible to sort out how many of the more than 1,500 school children who will visit the Georgia Southern University Museum in tour groups this month are coming just because of the Camp Lawton exhibit. If trends hold, another 1,000 to 1,500 people of all ages will file through as "walk-ins" in November alone, and their reasons would be even harder to pin down. The continuing exhibit on Georgia's Amphibians and Reptiles occupies a larger space and packs lots of kid friendly gross-out factor, with snakes coiled in jars of preservative and skeletal remains of other creatures.
