Opening Reception: Toys! Historic Playthings from Lane County


Come to the opening reception of the new exhibit, Toys! Historic Playthings from Lane County. We all have fond memories of hours spent at play, conjuring up stories and worlds with our toys. In a new exhibit at the Lane County History Museum visitors can walk through a delightful storybook toy store full of artifacts from their permanent collection.

While you can’t bring these toys home, you will leave having learned how toys, games, and play changed between 1850 and 1950. The exhibit features hundreds of photographs and artifacts, many on view for the first time. From children who made do with what they could find to those who were gifted with elaborate and expensive dolls imported from Europe, learn what it meant to be grow-up.
