Getting Ready for our Annual Models & Miniatures Exhibition!

It has been a very busy few days as exhibitors are bringing their models and miniatures to the Museum.   We've had some beautiful dollhouses setup complete with furniture and people.  The exhibit cases are all being exchanged from artifacts to Erector models of early 1920's and 1930's transportation and a Lego model of a busy railroad yard.  I've enjoyed meeting so many of our local model and miniature enthusiasts who are so excited and pleased to share their passions with the community.  I have enjoyed meeting some of our new exhibitors who attended as visitors in past years and decided they wanted to participate so we have new train layouts, train cars, and dollhouses.  I am always amazed at our exhibitors patience in building so many intricate models, most of them actually operable.   I am hoping that we have a huge number of families attending and that the children enjoy being creative with all the construction model pieces we will have in tubs located in an activity area and afterward those models will be on display.  This is a fun event for both adults and children.
