Eye of the Collector

Here at the Museum, every object and specimen tells a story. And in Eye of the Collector, the quirky, crafty, historical and fashionable objects of nine very different people come together to show that the recollections they have of their prized possessions are at least as valuable as the collections themselves.

At the heart of the exhibit are the diverse collections of Randy and Nancy Best, who view these objects as time capsules that provide insights about prehistoric life, ancient civilizations, and more.
