On September 29th, 2012 Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum will welcome GPS Adventures, a life-size maze exhibition introducing visitors to cutting-edge Global Positioning Systems (GPS) through geocaching, a family-friendly treasure hunting game. Many Oregonian’s are unaware that geocaching began in their home state, with the first documented placement of a GPS-located cache taking place on May 3, 2000 by Dave Ulmer of Beavercreek, Ore. The GPS Adventures exhibit will run through January 27th, 2013.
GPS Adventures takes visitors on a mind-bending journey in search of their secret treasure city. Navigating around obstacles and deciphering mysterious codes area all part of the adventure, ultimately inspiring visitors to get up off the couch and enjoy the great outdoors in new and exciting ways.
Come explore this new hobby and the technology of GPS navigation! Bring your friends and family and see who has the best navigation skills! Exhibit is located on the mezzanine of the Aviation Museum and is included in Museum admission.
