And someone else finally clarified that the exhibit is on _now_ through
Feb 15, 1998.  So now I have to go.  But can anyone tell me, is there any

I remember what happened with the Textile Museum - the two items of most
interest to me were only there the first month or so, then were replaced
with others of slightly less interest.
