5/16/2022 - The Cabinet of Curiosities: A Peek into the Unusual at Mystic Seaport Museum on June 10, 2022

On Friday, June 10th, 2022 from 2-pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for a virtual program exploring the hidden collection of the Mystic Seaport Museum.

Join us on an adventure behind locked doors into the “vault” that stores the Mystic Seaport Museum collections. Within the collection are many unusual and surprising artifacts. We will have a chance to see everything from unusual animal parts and strange furniture, to a curious secret ingredient used in some perfumes.

Krystal Rose has a history and historic preservation background and has worked at cultural sites in Georgia, the Carolinas, and Connecticut. She has been at Mystic Seaport Museum for fifteen years and is currently the Curator of Collections. Before becoming curator, she spent about a decade working as a liaison between the Education and Curatorial departments, bringing the collections to life on the Mystic Seaport for Educators website. She has a particular interest in natural history collections.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. The Rutledge Summer Series was made possible by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund. Registration is required. Zoom invitation links will be sent via email on the day of the program.
