Traveling trunks offered at Renville County Museum

MORTON -- The Renville County Museum is now offering a traveling trunk program, where people can "bring the museum to you."

The museum offers three trunks: a Pioneer trunk, a Technology: Then and Now trunk and a Homecrafts trunk. Inside each trunk are different museum objects which people are free to touch. Also included is a binder with information about the different objects and activity/lesson plan ideas and how they correlate with Minnesota academic standards.

These trunks can be used by schools, libraries, community groups and recreational groups. A museum volunteer can lead the program or people can use the materials to lead their own program. These trunks will be available for use after Friday.

Those interested in volunteering to lead the program, requesting the program or anyone with any questions is asked to call 507-697-6147 or email
