America on the Move

Use this guide for exhibition highlights in your language. Please follow these guides as you walk through the galleries. The photographs and directions should help you find your way.

America on the Move explores the role of transportation in American history. Visit communities wrestling with the changes that new transportation networks brought. See cities change, suburbs expand, and farms and factories become part of regional, national, and international economies. Meet people as they travel for work and pleasure, and as they move to new homes. 

Come along on a journey through America’s past.
