Fodor's Review

Using interactive exhibits, video, and works of art, the museum aims to combat bigotry in the United States by putting a spotlight on the nation's rich traditions of freedom and diversity. Galleries celebrate outstanding Americans and contemporary heroes from around the world. The Live Like a Hero exhibit celebrates everyday heroes, including teachers, first responders, and extraordinary children working to better their communities. The museum's collection of glass art is symbolic of the fragility of peace; its highlight is Dale Chihuly's 20-foot-tall red glass sculpture Flame of Liberty. Sandy Skoglund's colorful Jelly Bean People are a reminder that many of our differences are only skin deep.
