Our latest exhibit examines what it means to strive for the American Dream following World War II through the end of the 1970s. Coordinated with the electrification of the country, advancements in mass production allowed people to acquire prestigious, affordable objects designed to make life easier. New and Improved! is a multi-dimensional experience that invites the visitor to explore the evolution of material culture in the modern home.
