Be Our Guest ... Curator

Tucked back at the end of the history gallery is a small exhibit case just for you and your collection.  Every 4-6 months it showcases a new collection from a person or group in southwest Michigan. This page is devoted to those guest curators who lent their collections for everyone’s enjoyment. 

If you’d like to be a guest curator and display your collection, get in touch with the Museum’s collections staff.
