RACE: Are We So Different?
Talking about race isn't easy. But that's exactly what 200,000 people did.

And at the Science Museum, we hope that those conversations will be an important
step in changing our ideas about race and racism.

To the many community partners who embraced RACE: Are We So Different? and contributed to its success, we say thank you. More than two hundred thousand visitors from around the state and across the country have explored the reality—and unreality—of race and racism in America.

Thanks to the following donors for supporting local educational programs:

Leadership Support: Travelers Foundation, The Saint Paul Foundation, the Institute for Museum and Library Services

Major Support: The Minneapolis Foundation

Additional support was provided by the Grotto Foundation, Laura Jane Musser Fund and the Archie D. and Bertha H. Walker Foundation.

And thanks to the entire community in the Twin Cities for their support.

The RACE exhibit has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota and begins its national tour. View the tour schedule here.
