Visitors can gain insight into America’s craft and cultural heritage at three demonstration sites: the Blacksmith Shop, Print Shop, and Weaving Shop. All demonstration sites will reopen with the Museum in May 2013.
Visit the Blacksmith Shop to see demonstrations of how early 20th-century blacksmiths practiced their trade. The Blacksmith Shop also houses a collection of 19th and 20th-century blacksmithing and wheelwrighting tools.
The Print Shop features letterpress printing demonstrations that highlight changes in printing technology through the 19th and mid-20th centuries. Museum printers work at a range of presses, from the manual acorn press to the automated Heidelberg press.
Visitors to the Weaving Shop can learn about the processing of wool and linen into finished cloth. Museum weavers work on spinning wheels, two barn-frame looms, and a rare 1890s Jacquard Loom.
