Katie MacDonald, The Ruby Winslow Linn Curator, Old Colony Historical Society
As symbols gathered from personal, local, and national experiences, souvenirs are often overlooked glimpses into what people have found important at different moments in history. Examples drawn from the collection of the Old Colony Historical Society bring to life historical events from throughout the region, explain how museums collect and interpret both historical artifacts and souvenirs, and question just exactly what the difference is between the two.
Included with museum admission.
