Sailing the Seas of Our Heritage - Opening Reception

What a great turnout to the opening of the NHTC's first exhibit, Sailing the Seas of Our Heritage! Family, friends, visitors, and museum staff stopped by to see what the Council has been up to over the past couple months, and got a chance to talk with our knowledgeable exhibit creators. Visitors and NHTC members got a chance to mingle together over refreshments and talk about what the exhibit is all about.

This event was a great opportunity for NHTC members to show off what they have been working so hard to put together (even if it wasn't as hard as they thought). The conversations and questions revolved around the unique objects the NHTC selected for the exhibit. Lizette Gráden, our chief curator at the museum, pointed out that many of these objects have not been exhibited before.

Sailing the Seas of Our Heritage has giving the NHTC a voice in the museum's exhibits, and will give visitors a chance to reflect on the importance of objects of importance in their own lives. Want to see what all the buzz is about? Head up to the 3rd floor of the museum and look for our display case in the main hall.
