Exploring the Museum: All About Things
December 10, 2015 – January 31, 2016

A set of silver spoons, a Walloon sword, and a Japanese katana are among a collection of historical objects recently returned to Evergreen Museum & Library. Curated and researched for the first time by student history detectives from Johns Hopkins University, the diverse artifacts on display in this winter focus exhibition illuminate the broad collecting interests of the B&O Railroad’s Garrett family, the range of teaching that takes place at Evergreen, and the many stories that can be told through a single object
