Collections Happy Hour

  • Friday, October 6, 2023
  • 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
  • Hilton Pasadena, San Gabriel Ballroom

Get to know colleagues working in collections from around the region over drinks! This Collections Happy Hour would focus on the odd artifacts in a museum’s collection. Every museum has something a bit bizarre that they care for, so this meet-up would celebrate all those oddities.

Are your collections alive? Do you drive your artifacts? Or has your museum studies degree put you in charge of explosive safety for torpedoes? Attendees can discuss how different institutions are acquiring, cataloguing, and managing these collections. You might learn something to bring back to your institution, or be more grateful for what you collect!

All Happy Hours will be held onsite at the Annual Meeting hotel with a variety of beverage options. Ticket required for entry and grants you one alcoholic beverage with a cash bar available after that. As all Happy Hours will be in the same ballroom, you can float between and enjoy meeting a variety of colleagues.

Cost: $10
