Upcoming Events

Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth.

Education, Politics, Community Event, History/Science
Have you seen them? They are bold, powerful, tragic, beautiful, and true. Through story and dynamic, original contemporary art, Men of Change shares the inspiring lives of over two dozen African American men who have changed the course of our nation. These men, known and unknown, past and present, are leaders and icons whose significant contributions have often been rendered invisible by a country, yet have been uplifted by a culture.
This new exhibition from the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition Service opens at the History Museum on December 21, 2019 and will be on view through March 15, 2020. 
Storytellers, myth-breakers, fathers, community-makers, imaginative visionaries, and catalysts, see Men of Change and #KnowTheseNames.
Men of Change shares the inspiring lives of over two dozen African American men who have changed our nation. Developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and made possible through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.

Unforgiving Waters: Shipwrecks of the Pacific Northwest

Community Event, History/Science
The Pacific Northwest is a place of rocky beaches and shifting sands, of high winds and raging seas. Its geography is beautiful, but dangerous. Waterways have served as the lifeline for people of coastal regions, a center of commerce, but also a place of tragedy.
Over two thousand shipwrecks rest at the bottom of Northwest waters. Many of the objects in this exhibition were plucked from the remains of ships. For many shipwrecks, mystery endures about what happened to a ship or why it went down, but we can still learn much from the objects and stories that have been recovered. Travel by sea is no longer as common but our fascination with treasure and tragedy remains. Visitors will also learn about songs of the sea, nautical knots and more.
