Sedona AZ (October 26, 2011) – The Sedona Heritage Museum will host a “Behind-the-Scenes” open house on Saturday, November 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Museum.
Ever wonder how a museum catalogs, conserves and stores historic artifacts? Do you enjoy handyman projects and wonder how those are applied in a museum setting? If you answered ‘yes’ to either question, plan to attend this special event.
The Museum Board will start with a brief introduction of special donors who made possible two special projects this past year. Then the Collections Room and the new Restoration Workshop will be open for tours and hands-on experiences. In the Collections Room you will be able to move most of the permanent collection with a single hand, or you can help with a textile preservation project, or you can research the electronic catalog. In the Restoration Workshop, there will be a couple of projects in progress with hands-on opportunities.
Refreshments will be served. Museum admission will be free until noon. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
The Society Historical Society operates the Sedona Heritage Museum in Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Road in Uptown Sedona.
