Look Again: Discovering Historical Photos Exhibit
May 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until June 26, 2021
The introduction of photography in the mid-1800s forever changed the way we record and remember our individual lives – and our history. Examine dozens of photographs from the Museum of History’s collection. The traveling exhibit Look Again: Discovering Historical Photos, employs large-scale reprints of photographs from the Museum of History’s collection. Divided into four thematic sections – Telling Stories, Taking a Closer Look, Remembering Faces, and Capturing Moments – the exhibit focuses on stories and interesting details associated with each individual photo. The traveling exhibit also contains a small case that features examples of daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes, as well as more recent images – to show the evolution of photography over time.
