Are you curious about the Grand Rapids Public Museum’s collections, where they come from and what they are used for? If so, then come to the GRPM this fall, and check out the new exhibit Be Curious: A Glimpse at New GRPM Collections.

The Museum has been collecting for almost 160 years and prides itself on being the community’s institution of collective memory – where people, their stories and things are gathered together and meaning is shared. The exhibit includes: a timeline of vintage film cameras by donor Michael Myers and artifacts from local event performers, The New World Pom Pom Team donated by Ruth Ann Steward.

Enjoy a blast from the past with other highlights such as: mid-century dolls Bozo the Clown and Betsy Wetsy, Brach’s candy containers, a breast pump from 1940 and an Atari 2600 from 1978. What makes the Museum’s collection so eclectic is that most of the donations have come from our community.

The Grand Rapids Public Museum’s collection is a community treasure that drives the Museum’s vision: to inspire passionate curiosity and a deeper understanding of the world around us. Be Curious will be open through December 31, 2013. To explore the museum’s entire collection or learn how to donate your treasure to the museum, visit grpm.org.
