In the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation Object Project, visitors consider the impact of innovative things on everyday life in the past. This is a place to celebrate some everyday things that changed everything through approximately 250 objects displayed within a 9-by-40-foot sculpture that forms the spine of the learning space. Stories and activities center on bicycles, refrigerators, ready-to-wear clothing and other common objects with uncommon stories.

Object Project features more than 300 objects, a “magic” scrapbook, an opportunity to virtually try on clothing from the collection, and a special version of “The Price is Right.”
