Hardhat Tour (VHS accession number: TH1097.S927.1960_007)Throughout much of 2014, the VHS has been expanding and impoving our gallery layouts, displays, AV technology, and internet connectivity. Now that we're midway through the process come and take a behind the scenes look at how we're changing into an even more vibrant, accessible, and engaging gateway to America's past.
