May 2018 Part II
Two hundred years in the making..... Our Brown County opens at the end of the month and we could not be more excited! Our Brown County is a celebration of 200 years of history focusing on the stories that make Brown County the place we choose to live, work, and play. Explore these stories through 50 artifacts, 50 photographs, 50 people, and 50 places that demonstrate the complex, diverse, and rich history of Brown County. 

This exhibit is extra special because of all of the amazing community partnerships and public support! Keep an eye out for exhibit features from organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and artifacts like the Vietnam Flight Suit that won our public-vote Artifact Tournament!
