Museums began as cabinets of curiosities: display cabinets filled with items from antiquity and from natural history. A display of artifacts, however, does not tell the museum-goer very much about the past. To enhance the museum-going experience, many museums arrange their artifacts in displays intended to provide a sense of their historic use. The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum in Tillamook, Oregon, contains several rooms intended to give the museum-goer a feel of life in the past. The photographs below show some of these rooms.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
