Stored Treasures Special Exhibit:
Open Now Through March!

The heart of any museum is its collection.
90% of a museum’s core collection is kept in storage due to a lack of permanent display space & for their conservation.

This exhibition highlights some of the most stunning, unusual & rarely viewed examples of beaded & highly adorned artifacts from our diverse collections.

Remarkable Women, Extraordinary Stories
Open Permanently Now!
Thanks to the 2nd Floor Phase II Renovation, we now have a new permanent gallery. The three main components of this gallery focus on women pioneers, performers and artists. Iconic objects that tell the stories of their gender struggles and accomplishments are highlighted in displays dedicated to the Mende Women of West Africa, Lizzie Le Blond and textiles from around the globe.
Safari Family Fun Day!

This annual event is on Sat. April 27th from 9-1pm at the museum & all over downtown.

There will be Artisan booths and games and food adventures and a petting zoo and music and much more.  Main events are 9-1, but the museum will be open FREE with Scavenger Hunts for Young Explorers until 5pm. Maps will be posted on our Facebook & Instagram pages closer to date.
