What the Heck is That?

Wondrous and Mysterious Objects from our Collection
Have you ever wondered what strange, unique objects lurk in boxes on some of the shelves in a museum’s collections storage facility? Each museum has their share of objects that are odd in nature or are tied to a dark aspect of history. Because of this, many of these types of objects are rarely put on display. Well, now you have a chance to see some of the objects we have in our collection that are definitely on the weird side.

Please join us on Sunday, March 18th at 1:00 p.m. in the Bernhard Museum Winery for this FREE Community Education Program. Curator of Collections, Kasia Woroniecka will introduce each object she brought from collections storage for the program and will discuss how the Placer County Museums collects and preserves objects.

The Bernhard Museum Winery is located at 291 Auburn-Folsom Road in Auburn. There is limited seating available for this program and it is on a first come, first served basis.

For more information, please call 530-889-6500.
