The centrepiece of Flights of Folly: Learning from the Passenger Pigeon exhibit at Halton Region Museum was a taxidermied specimen in the Museum’s collection, but the exhibit addressed far more than just the pigeon. The 2014 show spoke to issues of environment and conservation, while using items from the collection (such as the china pictured above) to illustrate the themes and provide opportunities for visitors to make connections between history and their own lives.
