Preservation Week Road Show
April 25, 2015
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center
Celebrate National Preservation Week by attending the Indiana History Center Preservation Week Road Show to learn about the value of historic objects in your family collections and how to best care for and preserve them.
April 26 through May 2 is National Preservation Week. Since 2010, the American Library Association has asked libraries across the country to bring attention to preservation issues that affect historical collections. It’s a great way to discover more about your valued family heirlooms, and
IHS has assembled valued professionals to provide one-on-one consultations. Consultants will meet with guests about objects in their particular field of expertise. Guests register for specific time slots during the road show and choose from a wide list of experts. Free informative programs will be offered throughout the day.
Participation in the Preservation Week Road Show includes parking and same-day admission to the Indiana Experience. To make a ticketed, timed reservation, call (317) 232-1882 or click the reservation button below.
