Collections Conversations featuring the Museum of ...

Presented by Florida Historic Capitol Museum at Florida Historic Capitol Museum

Every collecting museum or archive holds more objects than can be displayed at any one time. Have you ever wondered what might be behind the locked doors of a museum’s storage area? Join the Historic Capitol Museum as we unbox a few items from our own collections and invite other institutions to share their historic objects and stories with our virtual guests.In recognition of International Women’s Day, the record number of women serving in elected positions this year, and the historic inauguration of the first woman vice president, we will look back at artifacts and archival records that share the stories of Florida women in politics. Curatorial Supervisor Lea Ellen Thornton from the Museum of Florida History will share a sneak peek at the objects that will be part of their forthcoming exhibition Beyond the Vote: Florida Women's Activism.
