Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library will host National Geographic's new television series, "America's Lost Treasures," on Jan. 30 and Feb. 2. The program is immediately searching for local guests for the show.
Do you have a Civil War era musket? Letters or documents from the founding fathers? Ancient Native American artifacts, antique musical instruments, or pop-culture collectibles?
If you have a prized family heirloom, or found object, with a connection to history and a great story to tell, National Geographic may offer up to $10,000 to display your piece in a special year-long exhibit of America's National Treasures.
Not sure if your item is authentic? You'll have the opportunity to bring it to Winterthur to have it examined by experts to find out how your piece fits into the rich tapestry of American history.
