Study Trip and Need for Volunteers, 2008
The museum moves into curtailed hours as the curators travel extensively throughout the new york city and new orleans environs on a study and collecting expedition.
Sites for the expedition: the theodore roosevelt house in manhattan, louis armstrong sites--both in queens, NY, and in new orleans--, the battleground at chalmette, LA--where the war of 1812 ended--and the lower 9th ward to witness and collect evidence of recovery, or lack of it... help us stay open throughout these winter months. volunteers are needed to sit in the museum for thursdays through saturdays in the second half of january and the first half of febuary.
