A grand re-opening of an exhibit and a new exhibit will debut this month at the St. Joseph Museums.
The Harry L. George collection of approximately 3,000 American Indian items became a cornerstone of the St. Joseph Museum collection in the 1940s. On Thursday, April 6, “Lines and Legacies: The Harry L. George American Indian Collection” will re-open showcasing many of the items from this collection.
The new exhibit, “WWI St. Joseph: Reflections on Community and Conflict” explores the story of the war that was meant to end all wars. The war resulted in millions being killed and empires destroyed. Like everywhere else in the world, World War I fundamentally altered St. Joseph and this new exhibit explores those changes and their continued impact.
The opening reception for both of the exhibits will be held at the St. Joseph Museum, 3406 Frederick Avenue, on Thursday, April 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The public is invited and reservations are not required. Following the opening, the two exhibit areas will be open during the regular museum hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Museum admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, (62 and above) and $4 for students. Museum members and children under six are free of charge.
