Talk and Walk: Curiosities from the Collection

6/14/2023 at 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Event Description

The MOAS collections contain many fascinating curiosities from the past including “Lord Byron's Walnut” (a tiny perfume case made of a walnut given to the wife of the painter John Hoppner) a small Egyptian cuneiform tablet, a box made of a mastodon tooth, a framed portion of the wallpaper from Napoleon’s last home in exile on the island of St. Helena. This exhibition will bring these rarely exhibited unusual items out of storage to showcase the uniqueness of the MOAS collections.  Join Museum curators for a rare look at these objects.
