Stark venues to open Tales and Travels exhibit

(Continued)

ORANGE — Stations at the Museum will also be available throughout the exhibit for visitors to have a hands-on, interactive experience. See and touch entomology displays, participate in a sample wax seal-making craft and join family and friends in a storybook station that features well-known tales for all imaginations to explore. Visitors can also see items on loan from The W.H. Stark House collections, including a writing desk from the first-floor Library, luggage and rare books.

Presented in conjunction with the Museum's Tales and Travels exhibition, The W.H. Stark House will feature letters, postcards and souvenirs from the Stark and Lutcher family's journeys. This exhibit titled Tales and Travels: A Family Scrapbook will be on view from July 13, 2013, through January 11, 2014. From the mighty forests of Montana to the exotic desertscapes of Egypt, this exhibit will represent travel across five continents, and include suitcases, travel documents and a variety of well-preserved historic images. To view this coordinating exhibit that highlights travel in the early 20th century, visit the adjacent Carriage House welcome center. Admission is free of charge.
