How does a museum collection begin? Where do you start? How do you continue? How do you determine what should/shouldn’t become a part of a collection? Can a collection ever become complete?
That National WWI Museum and Memorial started amassing objects and documents from the First World War in 1920 and has continually addressed these questions ever since.
100 Years of Collecting provides a window to examine incredibly diverse objects and documents as well as the opportunity to see how this monumental collection – the most comprehensive in the world – came to fruition. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with 100 Years of Collecting – Art in Memory Hall.
