The Valley of the Caddo Museum & Cultural Center proudly presents, “Journey Stories,” a traveling exhibit organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Our nation’s history is a patchwork of many stories, woven over time from the voyages of people, voluntary and involuntary, who traveled to build new lives state-to-state, across the continent, and from around the world.

No matter the country of origin or reason for coming here, from our earliest days, Americans have been intensely mobile, and we still are. Travel over roads, rails, rivers, and trails, even the skies, that have shaped our cultural and economic landscape. In many ways, our Journey Stories define us.

Exhibition dates are now through Saturday (Nov 11) at Valley of the Caddo Museum is located at 1115 Bonham Street, Paris. Hours are 10:00 am until 4:00 pm every Friday and Saturday except major holidays. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
