About the Exhibit
The exhibit will be installed in two parts: the first part which will be on display from March 7, 2013 through October 2017 will cover the pre-history of the region and take us through 1930. The second installation will cover modern Riverside history from 1930 to present and will be open November, 2017 - January 2020. 

Telling Riverside’s Story in 50 Objects (Pre-history to 1930) PART 1
Inspired by the British Museum’s highly successful exhibit, “A History of the World in 100 Objects," curators at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum have carefully selected a wide assortment of 50 objects to represent Riverside’s past. Alone, each object may not tell a story, but together they create a context which reveals the history of Riverside along the way. Mammoth molars, stage coach foot warmers, comal cooking stones, chinese medicine bottles, photographs, and more will reveal the rich history of Riverside from pre-history to 1930. Highlights from Riverside's history also include: Spring Rancheria, Chinatown, John W. North, early transportation, the citrus boom, Harada family, water, recreation, fire department, and more!
