Friday Show and Tell is a video series highlighting individual objects at the site - some of which are not normally on display on house tours. With tens of thousands of objects in our museum collection, it can be difficult to relate all of the fascinating stories each one represents during a 45-minute house tour. With that in mind, our Show and Tell video series highlights individual objects and shares why each piece is significant to the history of the site.
You can also visit our YouTube page to view these with captions and in high definition.
