A just-for-kids publication
Most of the temporary exhibits displayed in the Hayes Museum are created by Hayes Presidential Center staff. Each exhibit represents months of planning, discussion, coordination, and effort by our incredibly talented employees. The driving force behind such efforts is the desire to share with the public the vast resources available at the Hayes Museum and Hayes Library. In 2001, we created Past Times a special-edition newspaper to help young learners understand the issues and topics presented in our exhibits. Photographs, text, and games are used to re-inforce lessons learned after a visit to the Hayes Presidential Center. Printed copies of Past Times are provided free of charge to Museum visitors thanks to sponsorship by area businesses.
