Happy Thanksgiving from the Central Territory Historical Museum!
We have something awesome up our sleeves. Here's a little sneak peak. Can you guess what it is? #newexhibition #openingsoon . . . . #museummondays #salvationarmymuseum
Happy Veterans Day! For over 100 years The Salvation Army has done its part to support our military, veterans, wounded warriors and reservists. Thank you for your service. #salvationarmymuseum #veteransday #wwi
We have some good news to share with you. Each year the @illinoisassociationofmuseums recognizes both individuals and institutions who promote and display excellence in the museum field. And, this year we were included on the list of award recipients. On behalf of the museum, Assistant Director Betsy Glenn accepted two awards of merit during the recent Illinois Association of Museum annual conference. The museum was recognized for the exhibit Midwest on Fire: The Salvation Army in the Central Territory (located on the 1st floor of THQ) and the children's coloring and activity book produced for the Forward Together congress. Award recipients are selected by an anonymous panel of reviewers from around the country. Thank you to the Illinois Association of Museums and to the award application reviewers for their hard work. We are humbled to be recognized by our peers and included among some truly amazing award recipients.
It's a big day at the Museum. We are moving our hanging textile collection (aka, the clothes) into new museum quality powder coated wardrobes. #museummonday #gaylordarchival #gaylord #salvationarmymuseum
We are having a great time participating in KrocCon2017! It is so wonderful to meet Kroc Center staff from across the country and learn about their facilities and experiences. #salvationarmymuseum #krocconference #kroccon17 #krocstrong
