Current Exhibits
 

Last One In:
American Ideals
in Conflict with
American Attitudes

 
The history of immigration in the Lehigh Valley represents a sampling of the cultures and countries that are part of our nation’s history. This exhibit will highlight the many ethnic groups that faced conflicting attitudes toward their nationalities as they established a new homeland in America.
 
The exhibit in the Museum’s main gallery will run through the summer and will evolve in conjunction with lectures that focus on different groups of immigrants that settled here. The first display opens with an historical look at 19th century political cartoons that challenged the American melting pot and the impact of immigration on America from its earliest years.
