The Secret Lives of Objects

WANT TO HEAR A STORY? WE’VE GOT PLENTY TO TELL.

Pulled from the darkened shelves and hidden crates of the Museum’s collection storage rooms, we’re finally getting our chance in the spotlight…and we have some pretty remarkable stories to tell.

We’re from around the city, across the country, and throughout history. Some of us have survived the years unscathed, while some are proud of our hard-earned dings and dents. We all have our secrets, and together we’ve made history.

Stop by and see for yourself.
