Why do we collect and save objects? Consider this as you look at objects from our Gathering exhibit that are up to 125 years old. Then, take a bit of the present and preserve it for the future by creating a personalized time capsule! Bring it home and store photos, letters, and objects that are important to you, then seal it shut and open it in 5 years to see what’s changed.
