Did you ever wonder what goes on beyond those “Staff Only” signs?  This living exhibit will provide a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of what our Museum’s Permanent Collection professional staff does and why we wear those white gloves. 

Puertas abiertas: El detrás de escena de la colección permanente
¿Alguna vez se ha preguntado que pasa más allá de los letreros que dicen “Acceso solamente para personal autorizado”? Esta exposición viviente proporcionará una rara vista detrás de escena de lo que nuestros profesionales en la colección permanente del museo hacen y el porque usamos guantes blancos.
