BA Museum hosts ‘workers’ exhibit

The Museum Broken Arrow is hosting “The Way We Worked,” a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street program.

The Museum Broken Arrow will host a special day for local sponsor of “The Way We Worked,” Tulsa Tech, offering free admission to employees and students on June 24.

“The Way We Worked” tells the story of the American worker. The exhibit spans from the years 1857-1987, emphasizing four different themes of where Americans worked, how they worked, who worked and why they worked.

The exhibition is funded by the Oklahoma Humanities and local sponsors and is open for viewing through July 7. Docent tours of the exhibit are available by calling 918-258-2616 three to five days in advance of your visit.

“We’re so proud to be hosting ‘The Way We Worked’ at the Museum Broken Arrow, and it’s all made possible by each of our incredible sponsors,” said Lori Lewis, executive director of The Museum Broken Arrow. “If you haven’t experienced this special exhibit yet, please schedule a docent tour or come by the Museum. You truly won’t want to miss this amazing exhibition.”

The Museum is also gearing up to host a new exhibit from the Sand Spring Historical Society titled, “Pics on 66.” The exhibit will be open for viewing in early August.

The Museum Broken Arrow is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Museum admission is $5 per adult or $8 for two adults.
