The metals gallery includes displays of silver, brass and iron that illustrate how metals were formed into useful and beautiful objects. The displays explore the properties of different metals to discover what makes them suitable for one purpose but unusable for other uses. Art and industry unite in this gallery to delight and inform the visitor. From the simple elegance of a Paul Revere silver bowl to the glorious ostentation of a Victorian gas chandelier, this gallery highlights the metals that were so integral and essential to the life of early Americans.
