Three exhibition galleries provide venues for a continuous schedule of exhibitions interpreting research and collections in the humanities. During the run of our current, World War I-themed exhibitions, the Newberry is offering a series of guided public tours. If you are interested in attending one of these tours, or in scheduling a private group tour of your own, please see our Visit an Exhibition page for more information. 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.
