Ever want to know more about a treasured family heirloom? Perhaps you brought home something beautiful from a flea market or yard sale, but you are not sure if it is worth anything? As the Museum undergoes its own processes of discovery and evaluation during our Vault Visible inventory, we invite you to learn more about your own collection!

Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Pre-register now through Friday, April 29, 5:00 p.m. Limit three items per person. For more information, call 828.253.3227, ext. 122.
