The atlatl is a weapon predating the bow and arrow. Used worldwide for thousands of years, it proved an effective weapon. A stick with a hook on the end to hold the dart/spear, it increased the distance, speed and force of the dart/spear. Everyone is welcome, no experience needed! The museum will be offering free admission and visitors can try throwing darts using the atlatl and even join in the accuracy competition.
