TOYS

toys

 

Open November 8, 2013 to January 25, 2014.

Through the Museum's toy, game, and oral history collections, this exhibit tells the story of how our community's changing ideas about childhood, gender, and recreation are reflected in the objects of play. Come and learn about how the late 19th century board game Mansion of Happiness taught young children about good and evil, or discover a small collection of toys hidden beneath the floor of an Island home.
