Traveling Exhibitions

Traveling Exhibitions

Traveling exhibitions are available to rent or purchase for display at any site in the United States. These informative, colorful pop-up displays cover subjects in American history, from leading figures like Alexander Hamilton to important events like World War I and topics like immigration.


All the exhibitions feature primary source documents, many from the Gilder Lehrman Collection, that reveal the public and private words of people living at the time. In addition to the exhibition itself, the Institute provides set-up instructions and an exhibition guide featuring background information on the exhibition and its content.
