Have you ever wondered how artifacts are chosen for an exhibit? Have you considered how often museums change out artifacts, or why they decide to replace original objects with reproductions? Join the National Constitution Center’s exhibition developer, Elena Popchock, for an in-depth look at some of the objects inside our newest exhibit, Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality. Our exhibits team traveled the country searching for artifacts for this exhibit; now hear about how they were located, selected, and acquired—while discovering the amazing stories that they tell.
