Today is National Parents Day. Established in 1994 by President Bill Clinton, this day serves to recognize, uplift and support the role of parents in raising children. The act of parenting is by no means an easy task. Parents have long relied on various tools and techniques at their disposal to help make their job a little easier. This small mug from the park’s museum collection was known as a reward mug. Mugs, plates, and other small ceramics were popular tools used by parents in the 19th century to reward their children for good behavior. This cup features the phrase “For dutiful Behaviour” printed in blue glaze on its side, flanked by two images of children at play. #museum #reward #goodbehavior #museumcollection #prizedmug #kidcup #archeology #childreninhistory

Unlike the other floors of the house, the stove is one of the few items on the ground floor that is original to the Gibson family. In the 1940’s & 50’s, founder Charlie Gibson wasn’t as interested in preserving servant areas as we are today. . . . . #UpstairsDownstairs #SocialClass #HistoricPreservation #Preservation #MuseumCollection #Stove #CastIron #CastIronStove #Kitchen #HistoricKitchen #VintageKitchen #VintageStove #MuseumFounder #1884 #19thCentury #1950s #Boston

This baby carrier is one of my favorite artifacts in all three of the museums. The exact age is unknown, however, it was most likely made right around the turn of the 20th century. . The woman who made it used what she had at hand. The classic organic materials are there along with a belt, reins and baling wire. The belt reached around to the back to adjust it while it was worn.

So happy to have been given the privilage to work at this wonderful place and with these wonderful people! Be sure to follow @fort.stanwix.nps for more posts about our #MuseumCollection from yours truly! #Repost from @fort.stanwix.nps . . . "Welcome to our newest NCPE intern Nolan! We asked Nolan what he’s looking forward to working on during his internship and he said “Bottles might seem ordinary, but there is a wide variety of colors and styles and we can learn a lot just by looking at them. How they were made, who made them, what they contained and how they might have been used, what time period they date to, and much more!” Nolan will be helping the park conduct a survey of the bottles in the museum collection. While everything is cataloged, there are several bottles that contain what might be original contents. The park needs to identify these materials and have them tested for safety and to better understand our museum collection. He will be checking in to share some of the interesting aspects of this project, so stay tuned!" #NCPE #bottlesarecool #whatisinthere #safet

Today I decided to spend the day with myself and returned with this amazing experience full of knowledge as well as creativity from a hidden treasure, known as 'MUSEUM OF FOLK & TRIBAL ART' in one of the most commercialized plus populated cities of India, Gurgaon in Haryana. This hub of art and artefacts mostly belong to Himachal Pradesh, Bastar, Madhya Pradesh, Parts of South India is a genius attempt and hardwork by late Mr. K.C Aryan who was a painter, sculptor and art historian. The museum is now being maintained by his children B.N Aryan and Subhasini Aryan, who are both great historians & connoisseurs of folk as well as indigenous art forms. I request Anyone who lives in Delhi NCR or is visiting must pay a visit to this culturally rich place. It's an irony that something like this exists amidst the crowd of Gurgaon and is almost unknown to it's inhabitants. Museum of Folk and Tribal Art Urban Estate, House No. 2009, Sector 4, Gurugram, Haryana 122006 0124 425 0553 https://g.co/kgs/RxLrHw P.S - I would be happy to take you there 😊❤️🙏 #folkart #indigenousart #art #folklore #museum #museumcollection #arthistory #arthistorian #anthropologist #gurgaon #thingstodo #whatididtoday #goodtimes

Une fois établis au Canada, les survivants de l’Holocauste organisent des rassemblements afin de commémorer le génocide. Une commémoration nationale a eu lieu à Ottawa le 7 mai 1965 pour marquer le 20e anniversaire de la libération. Sur cette photographie, Lester B. Pearson, le premier ministre du Canada, prononce une allocution pour cette occasion. Assis à la droite du premier ministre est Lou Zablow, un survivant de l'Holocauste qui est un des fondateurs de notre Musée. #Artefact After rebuilding their lives in Canada, Holocaust survivors organized rallies to commemorate the genocide.

This block of sandstone contains a mass-death assemblage of 25 fossil gars. They died together 63 million years ago. Although death assemblages of gars are fairly common in the fossil record, skeletons are often found preserved on their sides. This group is unusual because each individual is preserved fully articulated in a three-dimensional belly-up death pose, indicating a rapid burial after death. #FossilFriday #MuseumCollection

Don’t walk on this velvet carpet. Incredible specimen of the rare copper sulphate connellite. It came from the Poldice mine, St.Day, Cornwall an area famous for secondary copper minerals found there at the beginning of the 19th century. If there was one mining area to be able to go back to at it’s hey-day then this is it! This specimen, one of the finest I have ever seen if not the best, belonged to celebrated collector Phillip Rashleigh. I love his description “needle crystals of copper ore finely shaded with a garter-blue and solid copper ore of a red colour in the underpart”. Still holds today. #minerals #mineralogy #crystals #blue #bluevelvet #crystalgrowth #geology #cornwall #poldice #mininghistory #cornishmines #connellite #rockhound #collecting #museumcollection
This is a life cast of Cillian Murphy. No one had their blinders up for this one! Born in 1976, Cillian was raised in Ballintemple, Cork, Ireland. His first love in the arts was as a musician, but it was eclipsed by his desire to act. Specifically, Cillian earned a part in the stage production ‘Disco Pigs.’ It was a two person drama that grew in its popularity to the point that they toured throughout Europe, Australia and Canada for two years. He followed that run with other stage productions including: Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing,’ ‘The Country Boy,’ and ‘Juno and the Paycock.’ In the late 1990s, Cillian made several independent and short films. It was Danny Boyle’s 2002 British horror film ’28 Days Later,’ that gave him worldwide recognition. He received critical praise for his performance as a transgender foundling in search of love, in the 2005 comedy-drama, ‘Breakfast on Pluto.’ In the same year, he took on the role of Dr. Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow) in the first of three ‘Dark Knight’ films. To date, Cillian has acted in 48 film, which include: ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley,’ ‘Sunshine,’ ‘Retreat,’ ‘Red Lights,’ ‘Anthropoid’ and ‘Dunkirk.’ From 2013 to the present, Cillian has starred in the British television crime drama ‘Peaky Blinders.’ In May 2018, the show won best Drama Series at the British Academy of Film and Arts Awards. Cillian is one of the executive producers on the show. #guesswho #reveal #cillianmurphy #tommyshelby #byorderofthepeakyblinders #dunkirk #drjonathancrane #scarecrow #actor #famous #irish #ireland #breakfastonpluto #peakyblinders #discobigs #28dayslater #anthropoid #thewindthatshakesthebarley #greatguessing #museumcollection #tgif #plaster #lifecast #lifemask #ilcmuseum #ILCM

Did you know? The University of Alberta meteorite collection is the largest university based collection in Canada and the only one based in a top three research university? #uofa  #researchuniversity  #meteorites #meteoritecollection  #museum #museumcollection  #universityofalberta
Image 1-4 credit: Michaela Ream Top left: Edmonton meteorite; top right: Brenham meteorite, lower right: Grein 005 meteorite; lower left: Whitecourt meteorite. All of these are examples of iron right meteorites, made entirely of iron-nickel metal alloy, except for Brenham which is a pallasite. Pallasites are mixtures of iron-nickel metal and the mineral olivine. All of these meteorites were once part of the core of an asteroid several hundred kilometers across. Q: Is it a possibility that the kinds of rare metals that can be found in meteorites would have sufficient quantity to make it worthwhile creating an asteroid mining operation? A: “It comes back to what some of the meteorites tell us about the composition and the processes that have affected those asteroids. So you can think of the planets in the solar system and all these individual asteroids as kind of like their own experiments—you put a certain mix of stuff together into something the size of the Earth and let it run and the core, the mantle, the crust, the atmosphere forms. “Asteroids are a much smaller scale, but some of them may have been hundreds of kilometers across at one point, and they got broken up. So you have processes like the formation of an iron rich core, rocky mantle and crust, all on the asteroid scale—hundreds of kilometers across. Collisions happen and you break that thing apart and the core itself is exposed and the stuff from the core ends up becoming stuff that becomes meteorites. "So we understand from the iron rich meteorites, the so called iron meteorites, that they are enriched in iron and nickel and other elements that went along when the core was formed, including things like iridium, gold, platinum (dissolved inside the iron-nickel metal), those sorts of things that are in relatively higher concentration than what we have at the surface of the Earth typically. With that in mind, people have proposed mostly if the cost of launching things into space comes down, then we could potentially mine these asteroids for these elements.” #meteorites #ironmeteorite  #museum #museumcollection  #highlights  #ualberta #uofa
