The Eastern States Exposition: A Walk Through History exhibit is located in the Hampden County Building auditorium, which has been revamped to house the vast collection of Exposition memorabilia. The permanent exhibit tells the story of ESE through photography, artifacts and historic items from the Exposition’s archives, including trophies and ribbons, pennants, posters and more.
"The Foundation’s aim is to ensure the future while honoring the past. We support the mission of ESE by providing funds for agricultural and educational programming, along with the preservation of our historic campus.The history museum was the perfect place for us to introduce the Foundation to the many friends of ESE and The Big E,” said Nancy Delson, ESE Foundation Director of Development.
ESE: A Walk Through History is open from 10am - 9pm during The Big E.
