In addition, there will be behind-the-scenes tours of the museum basement available. The reception also features demonstrations of the museum’s 1920s apple sorter and theater organ.

Be sure to check out the exhibit on local architect Ludwig Solberg in the blue gallery upstairs. In addition to many photographs, there are some architectural artifacts from his era and a three-dimensional model of a home he designed.
