125 Years. 125 Objects. 125 Stories.

A Pennsylvania wildflower and a pedestal fan. A school bus and a shot of homemade lightning. And the dinosaur and one of the first paintings that started it all. To mark 125 years, we’re telling the tales of 125 objects—starting with these 25. Over the next year, ours will be a story, not the story of Carnegie Museums, which begs the question: What would you include?
