Mount Shasta Sisson Museum presents new displays

Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum’s new displays are unlike anything the facility has proposed earlier. From the comprehensive railroad showcase which talks about the effect of iron horse on Mount Shasta, including a train coming via a tunnel as well as a handcar on tracks, to Smithsonian Institute Journey Stories traveling showcase, the museum offers an experience out of balance to a small town installation.

The season 2015 start with 14th March gala opening which again revealed how Museum has been changed the last few years through the efforts of executive director Jean Nels, an active museum board, and with the service of thousands and thousands of unpaid volunteer hours.

Arguably, the Smithsonian is one of the most esteemed repositories on the planet, and the Journey Stories inserts to that reputation. From the very first colonists as well as their bad effect on native population to the great human migrations throughout America, Journey Stories says how and why people came to be where they are now.

The exhibit is divided into 6 themes - Pushing the Boundaries, One Way Trip, Across the Great Desert to the West, Accelerated Mobility, Our Expanded World and Railroads Span the Nation. With the march of transportation technology to impart history alive, Journey associates how people traveled by walking, canoe, sailing ship, boat, railroad, car, plane and wagon.
