Orientation Area

Inspiration Gallery: Yesterday and Today orientation area

The orientation area introduces the six themes explored in this gallery. Exhibit cases display an artifact, visual, and audio representing each theme. This centralized area features a way-finding map to direct you to each theme. While the gallery as a whole is not arranged by time periods, most of the themes found within are arranged chronologically.

  • Our Lives, Our Communities-hairdresser set
  • Cultural Expressions-pow wow
  • Conflict and War-Doughboy uniform and gun
  • Agricultural Innovation-raking plow, oral histories
  • Newcomers and Settlement – model train, painted immigrant trunk
