About the Event
Our latest exhibit, Mattapoisett’s Strange & Unusual, opens on July 7 at 5:30 pm; light refreshments will be served.
Inspired by the idea of a ‘cabinet of curiosities’ – a concept dating back to the 16th century – this exhibit will feature fun and curious items from the collection, many of which have never been displayed. The exhibition highlights the breadth and variety of the museum’s collection. Most of these objects never quite fit into previous exhibits, but we think they are fascinating in their own right!
Come to the opening on Thursday, June 7, 5:30 - 7:30, to see eye stones, thunderjugs, fiberglass cow’s ears, bullet-ridden bibles, and more!
This event has no admission fees, but donations are always appreciated.
