Travelers’ Trinkets: Souvenirs of Virginia

The first exhibit of its kind in the Old Dominion is “Travelers’ Trinkets: Souvenirs of Virginia”. Learn about why people collect souvenirs, how souvenir collecting has evolved over the years, and what is the most popular souvenir of 2020! Thanks in part to a grant by Virginia Humanities, this exhibit is full of keepsakes from Virginia’s caverns, beaches, Presidential homes, state parks, and a host of other places. Beautifully carved canes, dogwood jewelry, racing trophies, salt & pepper shakers, shot glasses, postcards, pennants, spoons, and other collectibles make up over 1,000 items to view! Come share in Virginia’s souvenir obsession!
