Smithsonian Traveling Exhibits

Did you know AHA brings Smithsonian traveling exhibits to Alabama? In 2021-2022, we brought Water/Ways to communities statewide. In 2023-2024, we're bringing Crossroads home, highlighting change in rural America over the past century.


Crossroads: Change in Rural America (2023-2024)

Crossroads looks at the remarkable evolution in rural life over the past century — and explores how Americans have responded and adapted. This Smithsonian exhibit visits five Alabama towns: Cleveland, White Hall, Roanoke, Triana, and Ozark.
