Aladdin Lamp Program

Today, the museum hosted an Aladdin Lamp program presented by Bob Daniels.  The program was open to the public and we had a nice turnout.  Bob and Laura Daniels are local Princeville residents who have been collecting Aladdin lamps since the early 1990s.  Their collection started with finger lamps and has continued to grow.  We would like to thank Bob and his wife for sharing their collection with us.  We currently have an Aladdin lamp display at the museum.  Here are a few photos from today's program.


Below are photos of Bob's display.  During his presentation, we learned interesting facts about each piece.

Aladdin not only made lamps, they also made lunch boxes and thermoses.

Joan, one of our members, stayed after the program to look through Bob's Aladdin lamp book.


 As always, there is a selection of home-baked goodies and refreshments after the program.


Stop in and see our Aladdin lamp display.  The museum is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm or by appointment.
