(Victor Valley)–How do older technologies stack up against today’s electronic gadgetry? Find out in an interactive presentation, “How Did They Use That,” with San Bernardino County Museum Curator of History Michele Nielsen at the Victor Valley Museum on Friday, January 13 at 1:00 p.m. The presentation is included in paid museum admission.
“This is a great opportunity for visitors of all ages to explore technology over time,” said Nielsen. “Together we’ll look at historic objects from the museum’s study collections and see just how well they worked for the jobs they were meant to do—tasks that may or may not be part of today’s world. Come try your hand at an old-fashioned way to make a tasty treat, and explore written communication before the personal computer.”
