The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is pleased to host WWI Collectors Show and Share on December 11th at 4:00 P.M. Ten people loaned their memorabilia to the museum for its WWI exhibit. Some had only a few family heirlooms and others, hundreds of objects—helmets, gas masks, medals, etc. During this program many of these contributors will show their favorite pieces and share the stories behind them. The collectors will also present their personal histories as to how they became interested in WWI memorabilia. WWI Collectors Show and Share will be fascinating not only because of the historical details behind each item but also because of the human story.
The program will be held in the Montgomery Gallery where the exhibit, Remembering the Great War: Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of WWI, is displayed. The Museum opens at 1:00 on Sunday so visitors are encouraged to come early to view the other galleries. The program is free with regular admission: Adults, $4, Students, $3, Families with children ($11), and free for Friends of the Museum.
