Museums hold in their displays and archives the heart, soul and history of the community.
With this abundance of treasures it makes sense to take them out of the museum and send them out into the community for all to see! The Bus of Many Things can not only serve as a gallery to generate interest in exhibits, it is also a useful tool in documenting recent and not so recent history! A recording desk is available from the back of the bus. This fully accessible facility enables people record their stories and memories. They will be able to record verbal anecdotes, and scan photos, clippings and objects.
Whether you are looking to promote an exhibit or are gathering information for a future display on local history, The Bus of Many Things is the perfect venue for both!
