About the exhibition:
Museums collect objects for many reasons and only a small percentage of a collection can ever be on display to the public at any given time. As a result, the majority of objects are out of sight and unseen in climate controlled storage areas being preserved, awaiting their moment for display.
This exhibition features the collections of two state museums located in Tallahassee, Florida – the Museum of Florida History and the Florida Historic Capitol Museum. By revealing some unseen objects, we invite you behind the scenes to see how museums collect, process, and take care of collections for future generations.
