Museum April-foolery: There was a lot of April-foolery to be found at the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center April 1. And museum Curator Bill Rietveldt said the jokes are still on. Rietveldt has great fun each year planting his sly jokes among the exhibits as a challege for kids to find. The prank also encourages all guests to look a little closer at what the museum has to offer, he said.

“As I put them up this year, I found some I forgot to take down last year,” he laughed. He had special fun with the museum’s apple history exhibit. There are orange labels among the apple label collection and oranges along with apples on the old apple sorter. A photograph of the first Apple Blossom Festival queen is now one of Queen Victoria. A mannequin of a man in coveralls spraying lead arsenic is now covered with the codling moths he’s trying to eradicate with the long ago banned insecticide. There’s a couple of King Kong figures overlooking the model railroad and Beaker the Muppet is doing a wing walk on Clyde Pangborn’s Miss Veedol.
