|On Display Through September 5, 2010
|Baylor University’s Mayborn Museum Complex invites you to
visit the enchanted world of castles experienced through LEGOŽ bricks. LEGO Castle Adventure is now on display through September 5,
2010 in the Thomas E. and Emilyne Weed Anding Traveling Exhibition Gallery at the Mayborn Museum Complex.
Special exhibit admission includes the entire museum and the LEGO Castle Adventure exhibit at $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $5 for
Museum and exhibits are free to all museum members and Baylor University students.
To complement LEGO® Castle Adventure, the Mayborn has borrowed several authentic pieces of armor from the Higgins Armory Museum,
America’s foremost arms and armory museum. One of the loaned artifacts is a shaffron, or armor for a horse’s head, that was made in
Germany in the 16th century.
Although its history and development generally paralleled that of armor for man—both employing the same materials (metal, leather, and
textile) and decorative techniques—horse armor was generally rarer, being reserved mainly for the elite heavy cavalry.
To celebrate LEGO Castle Adventure the Mayborn Museum will feature themed events each Wednesday from June 16 to August 18, 2010.
Beginning June 16, 2010 with Medieval Weapons, visitors will be given the opportunity to engage, explore and enjoy through special
activities planned by our amazing facilitators. Admission to the exhibit and the museum on these dates will be $5 per

|2010 Lillian M. Brown Volunteer of the Year Award|
This award is given annually to a museum volunteer in honor of Lillian M. Brown, who from 1948 to 1990 contributed thousands of
volunteer hours identifying, cataloging, and preserving museum specimens, educating school children through museum summer classes, and
