Upcoming Events

The Emigrant’s Trunk

Historic accounts of early pioneers often reference an “emigrant’s trunk” – the physical container holding all the essentials for a long ocean voyage, the trade or agricultural tools needed for new settlement, and, that one special object that just could not be left behind. Using the theme of a settler’s trunk, this collaborative exhibit features the special objects brought to London by recent immigrants along with the stories the objects tell about a home left behind.

This exhibit is open Tuesday through Thursday, 10:00a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.
