The last stop on our tour is the gift shop. Please sign the guest book. We hope you will take the time to fill out the survey and share your impressions with us. Your feedback is critical to our being able to compete for future public funding.

Before leaving, please check out our last display “Taking Care of Your Treasures”, how to care for treasured clothing. We have here a very fragile 1860s gown, which we wanted to display but were afraid to mount in any way. Please take a copy of step-by-step instructions on how to preserve your very old clothing, as well as a list of sources for appropriate storage materials. We hope you will consider saving things that are important to you, so that future generations may better understand life in this early twenty-first century. Think about it: if you don’t save it, how will historians 100 years from now know how to interpret your life? So, if in doubt, don’t toss it out! Give us a call first, and we can help you make the decision.
