NEW! Vintage Toy Display

Social History Exhibit, Second Floor

Step back in time into an old childhood bedroom, scattered with toys and books! Currently on display in the Social History Exhibit is a selection of vintage children’s model cars, dolls, tea sets, and more. The items range in age, from the early 1900’s to the 1960’s. Visit us today and see how many of the old toys you can remember!

On display until Spring 2023.
