Open Permanently

The Spotlight Gallery is a continuing exhibition series that explores the scope of the Museum's wonderful collection. The rotating exhibition features seldom seen objects and oral histories chosen by the curators for an in-depth look. Visitors will see these objects which are individually compelling but without an over-arching narrative theme. Objects will be frequently changed out through the gallery, giving visitors the opportunity to see something new on every visit to the Museum.

Check back frequently for more information about what will be featured next in the Spotlight Gallery.

Merry and Bright: Holiday Cards from the MVM Collection
December 5 - 23, 2017


In the spirit of the holiday season, we are showcasing a wide variety of holiday cards from the archives that span more than a century. From hand-colored scenes of winter landscapes to festive gatherings, this exhibit will show how holiday greetings have changed over the years, and many of the cards featured have never before been displayed. In addition to holiday cards, the Museum will be showing a selection of dreidels from the collection of Nancy Salon.
