Whether they’re books, restaurants, or bands, we all have our favorites. It’s no different here at the museum. We’ve seen thousands of unique and interesting artifacts come through the museum’s doors. Whether it be a musket from the Revolutionary War, a newspaper, or a photograph, many of these artifacts have left impressions on the museum staff and volunteers. While we’d always like to feature our favorite artifacts, we sometimes don’t have an opportunity to place them in an exhibit. To change that, we decided to share our favorite artifacts in a new exhibit called Playing Favorites: 100 Great Artifacts. Every museum staff member and volunteer selected their favorite artifacts. Many have interesting stories, personal connections, or are just unique to look at.
Join us for the Playing Favorites: 100 Great Artifact exhibit opening reception on Thursday, April 6th from 5-7 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Museum. Get the first look at the new exhibit while enjoying refreshments with museum staff and volunteers. Admission is free!
