Every museum faces the challenge of holding more objects in their collections than they have space to exhibit; Plimoth Patuxet Museums is no different. Today digitization and online programs can take collections to learners who may never have the chance to visit the Museum in person. Go behind-the-scenes with Ana Opishinski, Plimoth Patuxet Museums' Collections Manager, and Richard Pickering, Deputy Director and Chief Historian.
In conversation with Richard, Ana will share some of her favorite objects in PPM collections and talk about the Museums' digitization and online exhibits efforts. Plimoth Patuxet Museums' archaeological collections, 17th century decorative arts and domestic collections, Mayflower II collection, and rare books holdings provide a window on 12,000 years of history in southeastern Massachusetts. Each item in the collection helps tell the story of the Indigenous life, the history of Plymouth Colony and the town of Plymouth since 1620, the Mayflower II project, and/or the history of Thanksgiving. Richard will share his favorite item -- an artifact that changed William Brewster's life and inspired an international manhunt.
