3 next sad. >> that information -- saturday. >> that information will be posted on your website and linked to ours myfoxdc.com back to you. >> they are among the most mild mannered animals we have ever had. >> they are wonderful. >> very sweet. >> i thought that was a min pin myself got a little education today thanks annie. holly morris at the national building museum in northwest dc today. >> she is checking out a recently opened exhibit, called house and home good morning. >> good morning we all live somewhere, right we all consider home something different and we all make our houses into homes in different ways and you can come here to this exhibit and explore how people have done that over the years and talk about it, and that would bring great joy to sarah, she is the curator she worked hard on this exhibit putting just the right things into it and i think this is kind of the fun part of the exhibit, all wonderful but, these are the objects that really for whatever reason people thought they needed to have in their homes through the
9:52 am
years how did you go about deciding. >> we have 200 objects here from all different eras and regions we made lists went to historical societies, did a lot of shopping on ebay and at antique stores and people's attics and basements. >> so i think it is funny when you go and take a look and say okay now they had to put that in there. like the farah fawcett poster >> absolutely. >> clearly that was in a lot of homes. >> yes. >> one thing we are trying to do everyone is telling a story about certain place in the home so, of course tara we have from maybe a -- farah fawcett we have from a teenage boys room, talking about teenage years and how we are separating that in the is the 70s. >> you said one of the things people wanted to talk about was priorities. >> absolutely just from the things we are looking at here that on the floor is a home exercise machine, it is an early one and that is showing,
9:53 am
the focus on health and exercise and that you can do that right in your own home of course it is like a rowing machine we tried to use it when we first picked it up at antique store. >> then you were injured and you were like no. >> exactly. >> we look at the different objects and see people's priorities it is a statement on them. but then you said you also thought these objects spoke to the possibilities. >> well, sure. i mean there is a lot of aspirational things here that maybe not everybody has. we do have in this gallery, kind of arranged by room, the room in the house, and then in this gallery we have a tiffany lamp, from the new york historical society the real deal. we have all different kinds of things a radio speaks what you would do in the home and where you would be while having that type of entertainment. >> what do you think people would be surprised to see somethings they would be
9:54 am
surprised. >> they might not know what somethings are from the yarn swift here, used towind skeins of yarn and the joy stick right there, on the atari. >> i love it. unfortunately i do know what it is. that speaks to my age. what do you talk about in terms of where the home goes from here. >> in future? >> mm-hmm. >> that is a good question. i think we are going to be seeing a lot of things that are not necessarily connected to a certain room, when we were putting these together we had an idea which room you would use that in and now people are using their homes in different ways like the wireless technology that can be any where and do different things. the other thing i think would have been hard for you all in terms of getting everything in, is that what is home or what is normal, is different depending on where you live. >> absolutely. and that is something you know,
9:55 am
certainly isn't comprehensive, not everything you ever might have had in your home but we want to give people a starting off point to have a conversation. somethings people might not be familiar with if you don't have a front porch or backyard or parlour you might not have some of these things. >> in addition i just want to make sure we got in, you have 14 wonderful models of iconic homes. >> yes absolutely everything from mount vernon right here, all the way to the gary house and they are all scale models based on the hancock tower, in chicago, an apartment building and multiuse building but you can see how tall it is there, at the end of the gallery. >> very cool. >> thank you so much for letting us get an early look at this myfoxdc.com our website we have a link to the national building museum this exhibit is on for five years you have time but take some time when you come to see the house and home exhibit i think you will enjoy it more fox 5 morning news when we come back stay with us [ female announcer ] safeway presents
