HUMANITIES TO GO

MUSEUM ON MAIN STREET

Museum on Main Street is part of a Smithsonian outreach program that engages small town audiences to bring revitalized attention to underserved communities. The exhibitions are designed to engage communities and become a catalyst for conversation about life in America.


WATER/WAYS EXHIBIT 2019-2020

The NJCH 2019-2020 Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program will be Water/Ways, a portable exhibition that explores how water shapes our ways of life.

Every few years, NJCH partners with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Its exhibitions are designed to start dialogs, build excitement, facilitate connections, and open doors to various community’s history, culture, people, and sense of local pride.

Easy-to-install, the Water/Ways exhibit was especially designed for sites with limited access to traveling exhibitions. Potential sites were invited to submit an application. Sites were then selected based on criteria, including geographic location within the state.

Programs are being scheduled for the 2019-2020 program. Check back for updates.

HUMANITIES TO GO are our "grab and go" offerings. Based on your organization and desired topics/formats, we offer programs, often subsidized by our federal and corporate funding, so that you can bring high quality humanities programs to your audiences.

At NJCH, we believe that everyone should have access to humanities programming. That's why we created Humanities to Go. We want the humanities to be able to come to you.
