Grand Opening: The Magic of Things

February 19, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Kauffman Museum began in 1896 as Bethel College’s teaching collection of “Natural History and American Relics,” housed in its Administration Building. To celebrate the 125th anniversary of collecting at this oldest Mennonite museum in the Americas, former and current staff have selected astonishing artifacts and specimens–most exhibited for the first time–that speak of “The Magic of Things.”


Join us for the grand opening of “The Magic of Things: 5 Continents • 25 Centuries • 125 Years of Collecting” on Saturday, February 19 from 2:30–4:30 pm. This come-and-go event will include remarks by lead curator Reinhild K. Janzen at 3:00 pm.

The Magic of Things will be on display at Kauffman Museum from February 19–May 22, 2022
