Feature Exhibit Car
Our Feature Exhibit Car is currently home to the “Imagining a Better World: The Artwork of Nelly Toll” exhibition. This exhibit explores nearly 60 watercolor paintings and the life of the young girl who created them. Nelly Toll was a child living in Poland when forced into hiding from the Nazis in World War II. Her paintings catalog her hope for a better tomorrow.
“Imagining a Better World: The Artwork of Nelly Toll” will be open to the public starting March 1st, 2016 and will close on February 28th, 2017. This is the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum’s first exhibit exploring both artwork and the Holocaust. It is being generously borrowed from the Massillon Museum located in Massillon, Ohio.
Opening April 2017 – “Quarantine: Diseases of War”
In 1918, the world saw one of the worst Pandemics in history; a strain of Spanish Influenza killed over 20 million people worldwide. All happening during WWI. This exhibit will focus on not only the Spanish Flu outbreak but other diseases during wartime.
