Museums are full of objects that make staff and visitors say, “Huh?”. But what makes these objects so strange to us? What makes an object “weird”? This presentation explores some of CHS’s strangest items. You will learn how even the oddest artifacts can be gateways into a deeper understanding and appreciation of our state’s history.
