Curator Tour: 1917: How One Year Changed the World

Thursday, April 27
Free & Exclusively for Members


Join Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions and Collections Dr. Josh Perelman for a tour of the Museum's newest special exhibition.

1917 is the first exhibition to demonstrate how three key events of that year -- America's entry into World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the signing of the Balfour Declaration, in which Great Britain indicated support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine -- brought about political, cultural, and social changes that dramatically reshaped the United States' role in the world and directly affected everyday Americans.
