Every object has a story of how it is made. Join us this spring for our new exhibit, How People Make Things, and celebrate that story—the people, the manufacturing processes, and the technology used to make everyday objects in our world. Once, every product we used was made by hand, usually one at a time. Now, almost everything you buy at a store is made in factories by many people each doing a part of the manufacturing process.
Inspired by the Mister Rogers’ Factory Tours, How People Make Things will show your child the importance of everyone’s job in the processes of creating the products we all use every day. Come explore as we cut, mold, deform, and assemble together and discover how familiar the story of manufacturing really is to all of us.
See you on the assembly line!
