COLLECTIONS PROGRAM NEW!
Tour the climate controlled storage facility and view some of the 35,000 items in the collection. Many of these rare and delicate items are not able to be on display. Through managing the humidity and temperature as well as exposure to light and other elements, these items are able to be preserved for future generations. Join this program on Fridays: September 9th, 16th and 30th. Tours will be offered throughout each day. Space is limited. Sign up at the visitor center.
