Tales from the Vault Program moderated by Erika Holst,  Curator of Art and History, Illinois State Museum

The Illinois State Museum is home to more than 13 million objects. Join Curator of Decorative Arts and History Erika Holst as she shares the fascinating backstory behind her top five favorite objects.

"Tales from the Vault" is a collaborative program hosted by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Illinois State Museum which allows the public to discover some of the treasures from these institutions' collections. Each program will include the chance to view an artifact or document not normally on display, commentary by a staff member or local scholar, and a chance for group discussion. All programs are free and open to the public.

The Research & Collection Center is located at 1011 E. Ash Street in Springfield. The Collections Center must be accessed via the gate on Ash St. and approached from 11th Street or further east due to the rail closure at Ash and 10 ½ Streets. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
