Interactive Exhibit: What the Heck Is THAT?! Ordinary Objects From Yesteryear That Are Mysteries to Our Modern Eyes


The objects we use to get through an ordinary day have changed tremendously over time, so much so that many everyday items once used at work or at home by your grandparents (or great-grandparents) are now virtually unrecognizable. This exhibit showcases a selection of the most mysterious, interesting, and challenging objects from our historical collection to baffle, befuddle, and bemuse you. Can you guess what they are? Bring your cellphone for an interactive experience!
