Museum worker with students and girls in dress-up clothes

Try out a rotary telephone or a manual typewriter.  Who can make the wooden top spin the longest?  Put together a striking outfit from our dress up box and take a selfie.

As you tour the museum, there are opportunities for hands-on activities in several exhibits.  Can you find all the items on your shopping list in the general store?   What do you see when you look through the stereoscope?  At the optometrist, which pair of glasses look best on you?
