When in Washington....visit a renewed Museum

This morning while listening to NPR then ran a story that on Friday, November 21 (Tomorrow) the Museum of American History will re-open after a multi- year renovation.

Old Glory is now displayed flat on a small rise, no longer hanging as in the former display.

The nues was all excited about Dorothy's ruby red slippers, Julia Child's kitchen and several other well know items of the 3 million, but no mention of the numismatic collection.

If I remember stories from when the museum closed the collection display, that numismatic items will be shown in context within other displays. That, of course, give little opportunity for a room of gold, as the Lilly collection was formerly displayed. Oh well.
