Snoopy and the Red Baron - Traveling Exhibit

March 7 - October 31, 2020

Charles Schulz introduced Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace in 1965, and over the decades the Flying Ace has become one of Snoopy’s most recognizable personas. This traveling exhibition from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, titled Snoopy and the Red Baron, tells the full story of the charismatic and beloved character, from the origin of the story line, to how Schulz researched all aspects of World War I to bring authenticity to the strips.

Snoopy and the Red Baron brings the full story of the World War I Flying Ace to life. The exhibition will delight fans who grew up with the Ace, and introduce new audiences to Snoopy’s adventures in the sky.

Votes for Women - A Portrait of Persistence

Votes for Women - A Portrait of Persistence

September 21 - November 30, 2020

Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is a compelling exploration of the women's suffrage movement and its relevance to Americans' lives today.


The crusade for women's suffrage was one of the longest reform movements in American history. Between 1832 and 1920, women organized to claim their right to vote, first in their states or territories and then through petitioning for a federal amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Based on the National Portrait Gallery exhibition of the same name, Votes for Women seeks to expand our understanding of the suffrage movement in the United States. It explores women's political activism, the racism that challenged universal suffrage, and the ratification of the 19th Amendment that prohibits the government from denying U.S. citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. It also addresses the suffrage movement's relevance to current voting rights issues across America.
