Mobile Museum for Community Groups

If you can’t make it to us, book a Mobile Museum presentation at your organization or community center! Using a kit of artifacts from the museum’s collection, presenters demonstrate how the objects were used in the context of the lives of the people who used them. Mobile Museum Presentations for Community Groups will incorporate PowerPoint images and time for questions and answers.
