The shops of Rivertown, USA provide a glimpse of life in Evansville and the Midwest in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The progression of structures reflect the general growth of many communities. A log cabin represents the type of living quarters constructed by early settlers, while a kitchen and parlor depict a home in a more established community. Other shops illustrate the types of services that were established by entrepreneurs, artisans and professionals to serve a growing population.

Event Details

They’re back! Dinosaurs will once again roam the Museum July 29–October 28 when Dinosaur Discovery roars into the Museum’s Evansville Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Center for History & Science. Dinosaur Discovery is sponsored by Old National Bank, Berry Global, Expressway Dodge, The Elm and Premier Pediatrics and Wellness.

Experience Dinosaur Discovery and get a taste of life during the Mesozoic era by coming face-to-face with large North American creatures from the Cretaceous period. Hear the thundering roar of the fearsome Albertosaurus, while a coastal Pteranodon flies overhead. Wander with the three-horned, giant-frilled Triceratops and its young as they graze on vegetation.

In addition to seeing a bipedal carnivorous dinosaur, a family of quadrupedal herbivorous dinosaurs, and a toothless carnivorous aerial reptile, children can become paleontologists while digging for fossils through sand and uncover even more fossils by rubbing crayons on paper-covered templates. Take a memory of your visit home with you with a photograph of you or your guests riding a Triceratops or peering out from inside the deadly jaws of a Tyrannosaurus rex. The exhibition includes a display of fossil replicas of dino skulls, eggs and footprint casts from the Cincinnati Museum Center.

Museum Member admission to Dinosaur Discovery will be $5 for Adults and free for Youth. Admission for Not-Yet Members are $20 for Adults and $16 for Youth. Ticket prices include admission to the Museum and all of its galleries, admission to our Evansville Museum Transportation Center (EMTRAC) and admission to any show of your choice in the Koch Immersive Theater during the day of your visit.

On loan from a private collection, the July 29-September 30 Main Gallery exhibition explores the life and work of multi-talented artist Nanene Queen Engle through her watercolors, drawings, textiles and sculpture. The daughter of Magdalena and Walter Queen, Nanene was born in Evansville on December 10, 1918. She graduated from Bosse High School, attended John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and moved to California to study art at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles along with her future husband, artist Frank Engle. The couple returned to Newburgh in the 1940s to be closer to family. When the marriage ended, Nanene enrolled at the University of Evansville to complete her undergraduate degree.

Engle began her teaching career in the Evansville public school system in 1955 and taught art at the University of Evansville while earning her Master’s degree in art from Indiana University. In 1960-61, she joined the faculty at UE as an Assistant Professor of Art. During the 1960s, Ms. Engle held Assistant and Associate professorships at East Carolina University in Greenville, Longwood College in Farmville, Virginia and Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville before returning to UE in 1969, where she remained on the art faculty until her retirement in 1981.
