Day of the Dead

March 3 – April 29, 2012

Girl Scout uniform from the 1960s2012 is the Centennial year for the Girl Scouts, and we are celebrating with an exhibit. Created in collaboration with Girl Scouts and private collectors, this exhibit will include hands-on activities and stories from the whole history of the Girl Scouts.

Founded in Savannah, Georgia, the Girl Scouts met a need in the United States for a place for girls to take leadership, to experience “non-traditional” activities like camping, and to have fun. Over the years, the Girl Scouts have made major contributions to America – on the home front during both World Wars, in the struggle for integration, and of course in empowering women.
