Unlocking the Vault: Mysteries and Marvels of the Museum

Exhibition Website

Feb 9 2018 - May 13 2018

Museums typically exhibit only a very small percentage of their collections. In the vast holdings of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, there are pieces that, for one reason or another, are rarely on view. This exhibition presents a variety of items that have seldom been “out of the vault,” and gives the visitor a unique look at why, what, and how museums collect.
