Sunday, August 11, 2019 will be the last day to take a tour of the exhibit Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives. The exhibit features photographs by Riis, a pioneering newspaper reporter and social reformer in New York at the turn of the twentieth century.
This Riis exhibit is a companion piece to the current main exhibit, For Comfort and Convenience. Visitors to the exhibit will experience immersive life-size photographs, as well as artifacts and personal documentation. This exhibit is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Library of Congress, and Edwin & Irma Wolf. The exhibit was adapted and toured for NEH on the Road by Mid-America Arts Alliance.
The museum will be open for self-guided tours Monday – Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM and weekends from 1 PM – 4 PM (closed on government holidays). Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for children, with discounts for seniors, students, and military.
