"Hall of Shame" Exhibit
The Museum contains an exhibit called the Hall of Shame that highlights graphic imagery and language, including scenes of physical violence, lynchings, and burnings, that may be inappropriate for children or younger viewers. Viewer discretion is advised. It is generally recommended that groups with students in K-6th grade exercise extra caution in planning for this exhibit.
Have students in K-2nd grade?
The SIMI Tour is also available! With both a virtual and in-person option available, the SIMI tour incorporates an abbreviated guided tour, along with a story read by a docent. You can select this option in the Group Tour Request form further on this page.
The Hall of Shame exhibit is excluded by default from our SIMI Tours.
