Boy Scout Centennial Traveling Exhibit

By: grabitsdm | February 29, 2008
The North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting plans to produce a traveling exhibit that would be available to county and local historical societies beginning in the Boy Scouts of America's centennial year of 2010.  The exhibit will be similar to the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit Service's (SITES) "Museum on Main Street" program:

  • easy-to-install

  • general content that establishes a context for your own local collections.

  • includes program ideas, educational materials, publicity materials,

  • helps identify and make sense of your local Boy Scout collections, and more.

As with most of the exhibits available from SITES:

  • a small rental fee will be charged, and

  • the borrower will arrange for delivery, and

  • pay incoming shipping costs. 

Space requirements are to be determined. The exhibit would be available for 6 or 8-week bookings. Since many details (content, size, time, cost, etc.) have not yet been decided, this is your opportunity to help us determine in what ways a traveling Boy Scout history exhibit would be the most useful to you and your community. 

If you are potentially interested in booking such an exhibit, please either e-mail Claudia Nicholson, Executive Director of the museum, or write to her at North Star Museum of Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting, 2640 E. Seventh Avenue, North St. Paul, MN  55109.
