The History Museum of Mobile is proud to announce its upcoming summer exhibit titled, Every Object Has a Story. Museum staff members thoughtfully chose a collection of seldom before seen objects to showcase some of the unique treasures of the History Museum's vault.
These objects include items representing Mobile's cultural, social, political and artistic history. In addition to presenting the story of the City of Mobile to our guests through our carefully crafted permanent exhibits, the History Museum also focuses on preserving the objects that tell that story. The museum's collection contains over 100,000 objects, some of which have seldom or never been on display before.
Just a few of the items that will be part of this exhibit include: a basketball jersey worn by Mobile standout Antonio Lang during his National Title career at Duke University; a complete set of Japanese samurai armor; and a flag flown by the USS Oneida, a ship in the fleet under the command of Admiral David Farragut during the Battle of Mobile Bay. Every Object Has a Story will open at the History Museum of Mobile during Memorial Day weekend, and will run through July of this summer.
