That’s Weird! History is strange ~ take a second look!

Thursday October 1, 2020
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


That's WeirdAn ordinary-looking map with a sinister surprise. Earrings made of human hair. A piece of a revered Connecticut tree carved in the shape of a … ham? Museums are full of objects that make staff and visitors say, "Huh?" But what makes these objects so strange to us? What makes an object "weird?" This presentation explores some of CHS’s strangest items. You will learn how even the oddest artifacts can be gateways into a deeper understanding and appreciation of our state’s history. Seating is limited, so registration is required starting September 3, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.
