Ever want to create a museum exhibit?  Feel like celebrating Delaware?  Now you can do both! The Delaware Historical Society is hosting a Pop Up Museum in honor of Immigrant Heritage Month.  A Pop Up Museum is a temporary exhibit created solely by you, the program participants.  We invite you to bring a small- to medium-sized object that represents the theme “Immigrants Welcome”—this can be anything meaningful to you that tells the story of immigration, past or present. At the Pop Up, you will write a label for your object that tells how it represents the theme and put it on a table for display.  The Pop Up will run from 1:00-3:00 pm, but please arrive by 12:30 to write your label. Then, spend the afternoon sharing your story, meeting other participants and visitors, and celebrating Delaware’s diverse cultural heritage!

At 1:00 p.m., Mayor Mike Purzycki will welcome participants and make an official proclamation that June is Immigrant Heritage Month in the city of Wilmington. Light snacks and beverages provided.

We also welcome participants to bring a photograph to add to our “Faces of Delaware” photo wall, which will be on display all month.
