Holiday Exhibit Hats Off to the Holidays & Our Parents Toys

Hats Off to the Holidays features hats used as the settings for miniature scenes. The Hat scenes were created by the nationally know miniature artist, Carole Pruzan and husband Neal.

Our Parents Toys features vintage toys from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. Many of the toys may be from your own childhood so be sure to point them out to the younger generation and reminisce over the fun you had playing with them.

Both exhibits will be on display through March 2014.
