We hope you enjoy this virtual tour for the Heinz History Center’s dynamic exhibition, American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith.  

Developed in partnership with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), this timely exhibit provides much-needed historical context following a year that included heated elections, civil unrest, and challenges to our democracy. With rare artifacts, engaging interactives, and immersive exhibit design, the American Democracy exhibit showcases the history of how we’ve voted, protested, and engaged with our politics, from the nation’s formation to today.

The American Democracy exhibit is supported by presenting sponsors Nimick Forbesway Foundation, Eden Hall Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and Richard King Mellon Foundation.
