Three exhibition galleries provide venues for a continuous schedule of exhibitions interpreting research and collections in the humanities. The Newberry usually offers curator-led tours for the public throughout the run of a major exhibition. If you are interested in gathering information about these tours, please consult the calendar page dedicated to the specific exhibition. Admission into Newberry exhibitions is free; please consult our Hours while planning your visit.

Major exhibitions of the recent past have included Home Front: Daily Life in the Civil War North, The Aztecs and the Making of Colonial Mexico, and Make Big Plans: Daniel Burnham’s Vision of an American Metropolis. These physical exhibitions were accompanied by Digital Exhibitions that have lived on after the exhibits concluded their limited runs. The Newberry also curates stand-alone digital exhibitions on themes and subjects inspired by our collection strengths. Read more about Past Exhibitions and our Digital Resources.
