The Museum has changed quite a bit in the past 100 years, and it will continue to evolve in the years ahead. We are celebrating our 100th anniversary by collecting information from the public about our past, our present, and our future. Do you have any vivid memories of the Museum? Do you have any favorite objects? What do you think this museum will be like 100 years from now?

Celebrate our 100th anniversary with us by making a video or sharing photos of past visits to the Museum. The links below take you to pages that explain how to do it.

Did you know you can participate in other ways? Our exhibitions and programs rely on sponsors and volunteers. Donate to the Museum or sign up to be a volunteer.
