Special Exhibit – Old traditions for new beginnings
The theme for the new rotating exhibit encompasses traditions surrounding birth and early childhood. Around the world, the arrival of a child is celebrated with special rituals and gifts, and our museum collections contain myriads of items connected with babies. Many of those are now seeing the light of day in this delightful exhibit, showing paraphernalia commemorating birth and documenting child rearing.
Visitors will enjoy viewing christening gowns and caps, baptismal gifts such as silver cups and spoons, early wooden cradles, and bassinets for the newborn baby. Tiny shoes and moccasins accompany receiving blankets, baby’s first cutlery, toys, and dolls. Books and journals illuminate child-rearing techniques of the past two centuries.
The new exhibit will open October 3rd and run through the end of the year.
