WILMINGTON, Delaware (WPVI) — The nation’s eyes will be on Wilmington on Thursday night with an entire category dedicated to “Jeopardy!”. dedicated to a new exhibition in a historical museum.
The Hagley Museum pitched the idea of the show and this week it’s finally here.
The museum gets its own category in the first round of “Jeopardy!” titled “The World of Patent Models”.
The collection will be featured in their new exhibition entitled Nation of Inventors. Participants will be tested on five of their 19th-century patent models.
“Patent models, for those who don’t know, are miniature models of an inventor’s idea,” said Laura Jury, marketing manager for the Hagley Museum and Library. “If you wanted to file a patent in the 19th century, you had to include the small model with your application. We have over 5,000 patent models and Hagley’s collection.”
The Nation of Inventors exhibition at the Hagley Museum opened in October. It was delayed by over a year due to damage from Hurricane Ida.
“The exhibition itself has over 120 patent models for people to see,” Jury said. “So we’re hoping that after people watch Thursday’s episode, they’ll come visit us in person here in Hagley.”
You can change the Hagley Museum category to “Jeopardy!” on Thursday, December 8th
‘Danger!’ airs weekdays at 7pm on 6abc.
