Treasures from Storage

Everyone is intrigued to see what is in museum storage; there is a sense that there are hundreds of treasures hidden away.  While there may be hundreds of artifacts, they are not hidden, but rather stored for research and future exhibits.  Once in a while it makes sense to bring them out, just so they can be seen.  This exhibit is designed to do just that.  It is an eclectic exhibit; the artifacts have no apparent connection one to the other; each artifact is interesting and tells a story all by itself.  Nevertheless viewing such diverse artifacts can also inspire new understandings and new ways of seeing, and offers the opportunity to create one’s own meaning.  This exhibit is rooted in the history, culture and heritage of the region, and we hope it will interest our visitors and inspire thoughts and memories.
