News & Events


For the first time in ninety years, objects donated to the Nationality Rooms are now on view in an interactive web experience.  Click the Resources tab to find the link to a brand new searchable, descriptive gallery of the treasures of the Nationality Rooms!  Many are never before publically seen items or are those that are not on view in the Rooms themselves.  Search by either ethnicity or category, or refine your search with both.
