There’s just one more day to check out the Prost! exhibit at the Miners Hall Museum.
Monday December, 26 will be the final day for people to head to the exhibit and learn about German heritage of
Southeast Kansas. There’s a variety of artifacts on display such as, German hunting club medals, steins, cuckoo clocks, officer swords and plenty more. They even have an interactive map where people with German history, can place a pin where their families or ancestors come from. After tomorrow, the museum will prepare to get ready for their next exhibit, which will open in January 2.
Jason Russell, the Miners Hall Museum Operations Manager says, “That’s going to be called ‘Carving a Lasting Legacy.’ It’s going to include a lot of things to do with wood carving. Awesome wooden dolls and found wood. We’ve all seen some of the most beautiful things come from just pieces of wood that you know have been found or just naturally have a shape to them, and so a lot of those things will be on display.”
Nancy Arthurs will be hosting that exhibit, and a lot of her work will be on display as well. She’ll also be carving some pieces in person a few times over the next couple months.
