RACERACE: Are We So Different?
May 28–September 25, 2011
At the Museum in Luria Hall


This exhibit brings together the everyday experience of living with race, its history as an idea, the role of science in that history, and the findings of contemporary science that are challenging its foundations.

Interactive exhibit components, historical artifacts, iconic objects, compelling photographs, multimedia presentations, and attractive graphic displays offer visitors to RACE an eye-opening look at its important subject matter.

Developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, RACE is the first nationally traveling exhibition to tell the stories of race from the biological, cultural, and historical points of view. Combining these perspectives offers an unprecedented look at race and racism in the United States.


Admission into the exhibit is included with Museum general admission. Museum Members free. Non-members: $10/adult, $7/senior, $7/teen, $6/child.
