What's in Your Exhibit?

Spectacles

The members of the Trinity College Historical Society had big ambitions to preserve “as far as possible from forgetfulness” their world and their community’s history for future scholars.

What sort of things do you think belong in a museum of today?

Would you save an iPod, your diary or Facebook profile, a ticket stub from a Duke basketball game?

What sort of story would you want future scholars to know about you, your generation, and your community?

Please post your ideas in the comments-pictures are welcome too!
