PHOENIX -- A new exhibit featuring digital technology to tell parts of Arizona's history will be on display at the Arizona Capitol Museum starting Saturday.

The "History at Your Fingertips" exhibit looks like an old-fashioned newspaper stand but features an interactive touch screen to either play a trivia game on territorial governors or participate in a simulation.

Visitors can use the exhibit to search hundreds of thousands of digitized pages of historic pages from Arizona newspapers.

The exhibit is part of the Arizona Digital Newspaper Program, which is funded by the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

It'll be open to the public starting Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
