A favorite field trip location for the ESL School at NYFA students in Los Angeles is the Autry Museum of the American West. The Autry Museum has a collection of thousands of items that are made available to people in multiple ways including exhibitions. The Autry Museum offers many different types of exhibitions. These exhibitions display artifacts such as artwork, documents, and objects that tell stories about the diverse people of the American West.
Some of the exhibitions are interactive and outdoor, which the students really enjoy because they get to be active participants.
1) Collection – a group of items that have been collected to study or to show to people
2) Exhibition – a public display of works of art or items of interest
3) Artifacts – a simple object (such as a tool or weapon) that was made by people in the past
