‘Journey Stories' to travel in Nebraska
“Journey Stories,” an exhibit developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and presented in the state by the Nebraska Humanities Council, opens today in Fort Calhoun.
The exhibit explores America's history through the lens of mobility and transportation — stories of coming to America, traveling across America, and the impact of the advent of railroad, automobile and airplane transportation.
“Journey Stories” will be displayed through Nov. 17 at the Washington County Museum.
The exhibit will be displayed Nov. 25 to Dec. 31 at the Madison County Museum in Madison; Jan. 7-18, 2013, at the Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln; and Jan. 28, 2013, to March 8, 2013, at the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center in Alliance.
