About Exhibit Events

A GPS Adventures Exhibit Event Cache represents attendance and/or participation at the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit. Created by Geocaching HQ and Minotaur Mazes and made possible by Development Sponsor Trimble Navigation, the GPS Adventures Maze is a traveling educational exhibit developed to teach people of all ages about navigation, GPS technology and geocaching. A hands-on experience that features GPS technology (its history, current uses and future possibilities), it simulates geocaching by leading visitors through a 2,500 square foot maze rich with interactive science experiences.


Want to Attend?

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL will host the exhibit June 2 through November 2, 2014. Since opening its doors in 1970, nearly 16 million people have toured the Center. Dozens of interactive exhibits encourage visitor participation, prompting one official to note: "Here, everyone can be an astronaut for the day!" Learn more about the U.S. Space & Rocket Center
