Our current exhibition, "From Marbles to Make Believe: Let's Play!" features toys of the Colonial Era, "Star Wars" collectibles (like Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Yoda), video games, and much more. The show looks at how we play, what we play with, and how games have changed.
Assembled from 400 pieces from our archives and from local collectors, this exhibition at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts (427 N. New Street, Bethlehem) cheerfully reveals what toys and games tell us about their owners and their times over the last century.
Play, an essential and longstanding human activity, has helped us develop our imaginations and problem-solving skills since ancient times. "From Marbles to Make Believe: Let's Play!” explores the history of recreation and play in America and examines design trends and themes in toys and games throughout time.
From carefully designed action figures to a collection of dangerous toys, "From Marbles to Make Believe: Let's Play!” will awaken your sense of fun and wonder, one toy at a time!
Plus, the "Star Wars" room features Dark Lords, Jedis, Siths, Lightsabers, Death Stars, Stormtroopers, X-Wing Starfighters, TIE Fighters, Wookiees, Ewoks, Droids, Hutts, and much more.
