Thursday May 16, the Museum hosts a free Tales from the Archives program at 7pm entitled: Mentioning Unmentionables. Historian Kim Parr will review interesting aspects of 18th and 19th-century underclothing. This program includes a dressing demonstration covering the time periods of the Middle Ages through World War I. Kim will demonstrate in what order a lady would dress and will explain with images and artifacts how and why undergarments changed through time. Kim Parr has over thirty years of museum experience, and currently works as the collection curator of Packard Proving Grounds, and proprietor of Michstory Tours, LLC. This free adult program will be held at the Holland Museum. Registration is encouraged.
