In celebration of the Museum’s 60th anniversary, this temporary exhibition highlights 60 special artifacts from the Museum’s extensive permanent collections. Each of the selected objects, from pre-history to the late 20th century, tell a unique story that help us link to the past and our regional identity.  A centerpiece of the exhibition will be the Museum’s recently restored dress of Princess Catherine Murat, great grandniece of George Washington and wife of Achille Murat, Prince of Naples and nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte.  This will be the first time in almost 40 years that the dress has been on display to the public.
