Current Exhibits
 

Last One In:
American Ideals
in Conflict with
American Attitudes
Now through September 6, 2018

 
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.

Over the 170 years since its inception as the Allentown Seminary, Muhlenberg College has served as a microcosm of the educational and social trends of Allentown and the nation. “Towards a Greater Muhlenberg: The Evolution of Muhlenberg College 1848-2018” depicts the history of the College through artifacts and images as it grew from a single building on Walnut Street to the beautiful suburban campus it inhabits today. Through world wars, the advent of coeducation, the turmoil of the 1960s and beyond, follow the historical trajectory of Muhlenberg’s liberal arts legacy.
