Using audio clips and artifacts, "Journey Stories" illustrates the journeys of Americans from their home countries including slaves, indentured servants and immigrants, and journeys of Native Americans. The exhibit also addresses the evolution of transportation in America and how the hope of a better life in faraway locations drove the industry to its peak.
