Human hair jewelry will be the subject at Lightner Museum Feb. 1.

 ST.AUGUSTINE – Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum.  The tours are the first Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner’s eclectic relics.

The Feb. 1  Curator’s Tour will delve into the fascination of hair art and jewelry and its place in both American and European Victorian society. The Lightner Museum has an extensive and varied collection of fine examples originally created to keep the memory of loved ones alive. This tour will seek to give a better understanding of the social customs that saw history’s last great flourishing of this long-gone art form.

Tours are included in the price of admission and will begin in the front lobby of the Museum at 10am the first Wednesday of each month.  Admission is free for St. Johns County residents with valid identification.

Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour.
