Saturday, February 18, 2017 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm

Why does newspaper yellow? How should I store my wedding dress? Can I restore old family photographs? What do I use to dust my Great Aunt's desk? These and many other questions are answered by museum curator Ellie Carlson. Precious heirlooms deserve the same care and informed treatment they would receive if they were part of a museum collection.
