Traveling Trunks

This Program brings history to life in the classroom through a popular outreach program.

Each trunk is brimming with authentic artifacts that were donated to the Fond du Lac County Historical Society. The artifacts are from the time period or theme of each trunk.

Artifacts are hands on articles and documents which bring history to life for the students and groups utilizing the trunks.

Additional artifacts to supplement the trunks and suitcases are always welcome. Contact the Fond du Lac County Historical Society to make a donation of artifacts or monetary support.

Trunks are available for typically a one week loan period. Simply call the Fond du Lac County Historical Society at 920-922-1166 or email us at info@fdlhistory.com.
