Behind the Steam: A Collection Exploration Speaker Series
Free for Members, $5 General Admission

What will you find when you go “behind the steam” with us at the Marshall Steam Museum? Join us every month for the next year as we take a close look at a special item in our collection and then zoom out for a larger discussion with experts and enthusiasts. Our collection goes beyond Stanley steam cars, so tune in every month to see what interesting items we uncover!

Upcoming Programs: 

  • Behind the Steam: Luxurious Packards, April 15 at 7 pm

  • Behind the Steam: Wedding Bells, June 17 at 7 pm 
    • What were weddings like at the beginning of the 20th century? Learn about the traditions of these early weddings through the lens of Clarence and Esther Marshall.
