The “Hidden Museum” focuses on the lesser-known corners of the museum’s permanent collections. Some groups of objects were donated by individuals in the museum’s early years and constitute “mini-collections”; other objects on display may not fit conveniently into our other primary collections areas, but are interesting and eclectic. This rare glimpse at art and objects “from the vault’ is sure to offer something new to both long-time and first-time visitors as we highlight treasures from our permanent collection.

This rare glimps at art and objects from the vault is sure to offer something new to both long-time and first-time visitors.”
