THE WAY WE WORKED

May 19, 2017 -- July 7, 2017

Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum
400 S. Main
Broken Arrow, OK   74012
Information: 918/258-2616

The Way We Worked explores how work became a central element in American culture. The exhibit traces the many changes that have affected the workforce and work environments over the past 150 years. The Way We Worked uses videos, photos, interactive materials, and artifacts to tell the story of the impact of work on American culture. 

The Way We Worked has been adapted from an original exhibition developed by the National Archives. The five Oklahoma host sites for this exhibit will also feature complementary programs and exhibits that highlight the history of work in their own hometowns. Following the exhibit's debut in Perry, it will travel to Grove, Broken Arrow, Waurika, and Poteau through November 2017. The exhibit is free and open to all ages.
