Museums I Visited

Between 2013 and 2017, I visited a dozen museums and saw more than 100 caps.  Here is a list of the museums*, and the artifacts I saw at each one.

INSIDE OUT: REVEALING CLOTHING'S HIDDEN SECRETS Kent State Museum
https://www.kent.edu/museum/event/inside-out-revealing-clothings-hidden-secrets

Each is listed with its museum dates. Those deemed eighteenth-century for this project are starred.

Many more leads could not be followed up because of time constraints.  More caps with eighteenth-century dates exist than were supposed, and, one assumes, more will be discovered.
