Explore Crossroads

The partnership between the Smithsonian Institution's Museum on Main Street program and Humanities Kansas extends the conversation about history, heritage, and ideas to communities statewide. High quality national exhibitions designed for small museums and other cultural organizations provide a springboard for explorations of local history and traditions, including highlights, turning points, and challenges. These local stories add to the larger national story to help us better understand American values and ideas.
