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, including 19 Nobel Peace Prize winners, and contemporary heroes from around the world. 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 is a reminder that many of our differences are only skin deep.
