The exhibit Traveling the Silk Road showcases the journeys merchants went on and how this trading route changed many cultures and their understanding of each other.
Take a trip back in time to the golden age of jazz, when hot spots like the Cotton Club featured the best acts from Harlem and swing music was just starting to infuse the country with renewed energy.
