On Saturday, August 18th a terrific group of PT Members joined with our very own Sonny Darnell, who recently finished all of his extensive training as an official docent ! Sonny took is on a brief tour of the "old" museum and the wonderful new wing. He did a great job.

 

He was very informed on the museum and the many artworks. Most of us had been through the new wing and the old wing at some time. It was fun to hear the remarks, some of us showing our age... "Hmm, where is the famous Knight in Armor? Or Wasn't the Entrance to the Theatre over in this area? Oh, the Faberge used to be over there!" Sonny also brought us into the new wing showing us some of the most current items.as well as an excellent description of the Victorian marble sculpture of Cleopatra. In just a little over an hour, we had a great introduction.
