What the #*!! Is That? Exhibit
Now on view.
The objects we use to get through an ordinary day have changed tremendously over time, so much so that many everyday items once used at work or at home by your great-grandparents are now virtually unrecognizable. This Suffolk County Historical Society Museum exhibit showcases a selection of the more mysterious, interesting and challenging objects from their collection to baffle, befuddle and bemuse.
300 West Main Street, Riverhead. 631-727-2881,
