Esse Purse Museum's newest temporary exhibit, "Purses with Purpose: Girl Scouts Through the Decades," highlights the growth and impact of the nonprofit over the course of its history. 

The new exhibit, which debuts on Tuesday, May 21, covers the organization's history all the way back to its beginnings in 1912 when the Girl Scouts were formed by Juliette Gordon Low. The exhibit showcases handbags, uniforms and objects on loan from the Girl Scouts of the USA, Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, Esse Purse Museum and the personal collection of Kathleen Pate.

Catch the temporary exhibit through Sunday, August 18. Regular museum admission includes the special exhibit. Regular museum and store hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Sundays.
