Photos: How to Install a New Museum Exhibit

Back in late February, staff revamped the orientation exhibit in the visitors center at George Washington’s Ferry Farm.  The new exhibit called The Science of History at Ferry Farm tells the story of how archaeologists and historians discovered the location of the Washington family home using, in some cases, the latest scientific techniques.  It includes a variety of artifacts recovered from the house site.  This team effort involved members of the Curatorial, Archaeology, and Buildings and Grounds departments.  These photos present a glimpse behind-the-scenes into how an museum exhibit gets put together.
