Extra! Extra! We are blogging all about it! Discovery Park of America has made its debut on the new TV series, “Museum Men,” which runs on The History Channel 2. On Saturday night, January 10, the episode highlighted some items of torture from the Spanish Inquisition that the Creative Arts team reproduced for Discovery Park. Creative Arts is a team that “designs and builds historical exhibits for both big and small museums throughout the country.” The items that Creative Arts made for Discovery Park include The Rack, The Breaking Wheel, and even a life-sized Brazen Bull!
