For the holiday exhibit “My Favorite Gift’, the museum is seeking the loan of an item or items which had special meaning when received and the story behind it. Was it a treasured memento handed down from generation to generation or perhaps given at a very special point in one’s life? Even something that perhaps changed your pathway in life? Not only would the Museum like to borrow the artifact, but request that the lender add details about its significance, who gave it, why it was given- which we will be included in a write-up about the object.
The exhibit continues through January 15, 2022.For further information about the exhibit, please visit our website, tabermuseum.org or telephone 570.326.3326.
