The United States is referrred to as a melting pot for good reason. Our citizenry is made up of immigrants and first-generation Americans, of people who chose to come here freely and those who had no choice. In the Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibit Journey Stories, the American identity is examined through the stories of our ancestors. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
