BRAVO! and Champions
Ongoing exhibitions
Third Floor Mezzanines

rule


Two additional exhibitions feature particular themes in American life.
BRAVO! showcases individuals who have brought the performing arts to life, beginning with P.T. Barnum, who raised the curtain on modern entertainment in the late-19th century and continuing through the present.

Champions salutes the dynamic American sports figures whose impact has extended beyond the athletic realm and made them a part of the larger story of the nation. A lively combination of portraits, artifacts, memorabilia and videos enhances both exhibitions.
