Photographs, paper documents, and heirloom objects such as tools or toys are in every closet and attic. How do we keep them for future generations? Why do we want to? Get a peek behind the scenes at Living History Farms’ storage facilities and discover the hidden treasures in our collection. Join us for a peek in the acid-free boxes and map shelves, which carefully house objects too fragile for everyday museum display. These rarely-seen gems are safely tucked away most of the year, but will be opened for our tour! Discover how even the most basic items can teach us about our past. This tour will inspire you to care and conserve your own heirlooms. Staff will share tips for preservation care you can easily do at home!
