Part of the Museum of History’s mission is to help people understand how the past influences the present. In line with this goal, we intend to provoke your thoughts with future posts that might include
- Windows into the past. We’ll introduce ideas that focus on everyday life, holidays, social issues, human interest stories, and more.
- Museum artifacts. Did you know that, on average, 80 percent of any museum’s objects are in storage? The Museum of History is no different, and this blog will be our opportunity to share some of our treasures with you and to tell you stories that are seldom heard.
- A glimpse behind the curtain. Occasionally, we’ll throw in a post in which you meet some of the creative personalities that work backstage and see what is needed to work at the museum.
