On the Rails: Part 2

All aboard! Today on Museum Bites we’re back on the rails and winding up our tour through the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Join me for a look at how a medical student, shipping clerk, and former US president all had an impact on this controversial game. We begin by rolling back the clock to the 1860s… 

Paper Town

Fasten your seatbelts because today on Museum Bites we’re taking a road trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin, a city that thrives on paper, cheese, and football. In this first of a three-part series, we’re touring the Neville Public Museum to learn about paper and papermaking. Paper carries our news, preserves our stories, wraps our gifts, decorates our walls, is a lightweight source of currency, and plays an important role (roll!) in our personal hygiene. Join me for a brief look at the story of paper. Our paper trail begins in ancient China…
