Have you ever wondered what it takes to put together an exhibition in a museum? "Tools of the Trade" will provide museum visitors a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes. Through interactive displays, visitors will learn what archival materials are and why we use them, see what the inside of an art shipping crate looks like, design their own exhibition layout and write their own object labels.
