Prized Relics: Historic Souvenirs from the Collection Gallery Talk
In the 1800s Americans became increasingly interested in collecting souvenirs that physically connected them to important places, people and events in the emerging national story. Fragments of a cherished quilt, gavels made from wood from famous trees, or bits of wood and stone collected on tourists’ journeys all tell us something about their collectors and what places and events they deemed historic. Join museum staff for this free gallery tour on the exhibition's opening day.
