Antique Treasures Show
12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The opening of the new exhibit, “Form & Function: Objects with Flair,” coincides with the annual Antique Treasures Show. This popular event highlights the collection and preservation part of the museum’s mission.
Antique Treasures Show is from 12-4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 21. Regular admission applies: $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens, $3 for children 4 to 17, $2 for veterans, and free for children 3 and under. The fee includes admission to all of the museum’s offerings, including the milking demonstration at 3 p.m., the blacksmith demonstrations, and cart rides to see the animals.
Visitors to the museum on this afternoon are encouraged to bring their antiques and heirlooms to learn more about them and how to preserve them (not too big, and only two per person, please). An independent appraiser will be on hand, and vendors will be on site with antiques and collectibles for sale.
The museum’s collections manager, Holly Radke, will have various items from the Collections Storage Room on display in the gallery next to the Form & Function exhibit with information about how best to preserve them.
The public also is invited to play “Stump the Curator” with unusual objects they bring with them. Prizes will be available.
