"Boxing Up the Past, Packing for the Future"

Jan 28, 2014 - Jan 29, 2015


The Nordic Heritage Teen Council presents

“Boxing up the Past, Packing for the Future”

The NHTC explored the idea of moving to an unfamiliar place, a prevalent theme at the Nordic Heritage Museum, and asked these questions: What would it be like to move to another country and what in the world would you take with you, especially if you could only choose a few possessions to bring? The NHTC created this exhibit to answer these questions and to compare the experience of moving to a new place in the past to what it might be like today.
