Polite Society: Etiquette Past and Present

Published Image Size: 180 × 119

This fun exhibit looks at the history of etiquette while comparing our modern ‘polite society’. In what ways have customs changed in how we interact with one another? With use of objects from the Museum’s collections including calling cards, an array of hats, George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior, and as well as an interactive exhibit to try your hand at calligraphy – this exhibit will make you think about how interpretations have changed of what is considered civil behavior!
