Museum curators take care of the old things in our park buildings. One way they do that is by looking at the objects in each room every day.
You may have some of these objects at home, but they look different. The mousetrap from George Washington's time looks totally different than a mousetrap today. But, spoons and rolling pins haven't changed much at all through the years.
