Tour leader: Peter T. Alter, Chicago History Museum

Facing Freedom is the Chicago History Museum's newest permanent exhibit. Based on the central idea that the United States has been shaped by conflicts over freedom, this installation uses images, artifacts, and interactivity to explore eight stories about what it means to be free. Facing Freedom's target audience is middle and high school students visiting the museum on school group tours. An exhibit curator will lead participants on a tour of the exhibit and discuss the project team's approaches to the target audience.
