You know you have a great job when you get to play with toys and games

The Galt Museum & Archives presents three special exhibits a year to the community. The Galt is currently developing an exhibition all about the toys and games we play with. The Toys & Games ~ engage, entertain, educate exhibit will run from October 1, 2011 to January 8, 2012. We have a great collection of toys and games in our Collections but we do not have all that we would like to feature in the exhibit. What is in your basement or attic in the way of commercially and/or handmade toys? Do you have a toy or game which came from another country?

We are limiting our request to a specific list of toys and games - a sample of the list follows. For the complete list please go to www.galtmuseum.com/exhibits-toysandgames. If you have one or more toys and or games from the list (at or near the date shown) and are willing to loan it/them to the Galt Museum & Archives from July 1, 2011 to January 30, 2012, please contact us at wendy.aitkens@galtmuseum.com. We must hear from you by May 31, 2011.
