Experience The Nation We Build Together, with signature exhibitions and interactive experiences in our newly renovated second floor west wing.

Centered on the ideas and ideals of America, the exhibitions – American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith; Many Voices, One Nation; Religion in Early America; and Within These Walls – provide an impactful look into the context of the country’s founding and its evolution today. In Unity Square, visitors will find a new level of public engagement with hands-on activities and theater programs that include a spotlight on one of the Museum’s national treasures, the Greensboro Lunch Counter.
