Mystery History, curated by Ann Erdman, is a fun and engaging exhibition for all ages that includes historic photographs, artworks and artifacts from Pasadena Museum of History’s extensive collection. Inspired by the popular Mystery HistoryTM series on her blog, Erdman challenges visitors to identify the location and historical significance of the photos, which are complemented by rarely seen historic objects directly associated with them, including the mysteriously named Million Dollar Piano.
