While on a historic house tour, have you ever wondered, “What’s behind that closed door?” Have you wanted to pick up and really look at the artifacts? Have you had the urge to open the cabinets and peek inside?
History lovers are naturally curious, and we visit historic places in order to immerse ourselves in a time gone by. However, in order to protect the artifacts that fascinate us, museum curators must prohibit us from getting too close. The curators of the Fond du Lac County Historical Society have a solution to this age-old dilemma!
Using video technology, Curator Lisa Pauly Lefeber gives behind-the-scenes tours of the Historic Galloway House and Village museum collections. Join us for a rarely-granted, intimate exploration of off-limits spaces in the Historic Galloway House and Village: Backstage Pass.
