Event description:

What makes an object “historical?” Why do museums keep objects behind glass? Children will ponder these questions while holding, touching, and feeling historical artifacts from the museum's collection. They will learn about the history of those objects through this tactical investigation and by relating these historical artifacts to their own lives.
