Souvenirs - The Barnum Museum

The souvenir sub-collection encompasses a wide variety of items, including ephemera (things not meant to last long, such as tickets) and precious objects. Many items pertain to P. T. Barnum’s celebrities, especially Charles S. Stratton (“Gen. Tom Thumb”) and his wife Lavinia Warren, Jenny Lind, and Jumbo the Elephant. Among the items are tickets, calling cards, paper dolls, a large printed handkerchief, and a souvenir slice of wedding cake. The medal awarded to P.T. Barnum to honor his dedication to the temperance cause is also included.
