Pop Up Museum: Oh the Place’s You’ll Go

August 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the Goodhue County Historical Society and the Van Horn Public Library to celebrate this summer’s library theme: Reading takes you everywhere!

You are invited to bring any object or photograph related to the places you have traveled. Participate in this community show-and-tell event at the Van Horn Public Library through your on-topic item. Share your story with your neighbors and friends. Each person will write a label for their personal item and leave it on display in the Pop Up Museum. This event will include music, snacks, and fun! 

What is a Pop Up Museum?
Pop Up Museums are temporary exhibits created by the individuals that show up to share their story or listen to other people’s stories. We will pick a theme and a venue. Everyone (especially you) is invited to bring an object related to that theme to share with the Goodhue County community. Pop Up Museums can happen anywhere, at anytime, as long as there are people who want to share their stories.

What’s the point?
Pop Up Museums focus on recent history – your history. We want to come to where you are to learn about you, the citizens of Goodhue County.

Our hope is that people in the community will use Pop Up Museums to come together to engage in conversation through stories, objects, and photographs. Pop Up Museums allow participants to make meaningful connections with others and find commonalities with people across all walks of life. All of you are a part of Goodhue County history and we believe your stories should be shared and celebrated!
