TCHS changes exhibits in two of our galleries 2-3 times a year. The remaining galleries are host to several “permanent items” that can be enjoyed whenever you stop by the museum. Many of these items have a rich history and have been local favorites for some time.
View our upcoming exhibits to see what we have scheduled!
Tea Pots & Sets
This mini-exhibit features the museum’s classical collection of tea pots and sets. The display highlights a variety of sets, which may have many pieces, all necessary for proper tea brewing and mixing techniques. They also display fantastic art, colors, and designs of the 1800s and early 1900s.
President’s Day Exhibit
On the third Monday of February, we celebrate President’s Day! This day recognizes the birthdays of two of our most famous presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. This mini-exhibit will feature interesting artifacts from both Washington and Lincoln, as well as various other American men who have served terms in office.
Current Main Exhibit:
Our Grand Old Flags…and the Stories they Tell
The American flag has experienced many different designs since our country’s birth. There are 13-star flags of the original colonies to 48-star flags of the 1950’s that had yet to include Hawaii and Alaska. This exhibit will feature the journey our flag has taken, along with each one’s tie to Tioga County history.
