Smithsonian’s Museum traveling exhibition on water and its impact making waves in Palm Coast

PALM COAST, Fla. — “Water/Ways,” a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street, continues to make waves at the African American Museum and Cultural Center’s Founders Gallery.

The exhibition, presented by the African American Cultural Society, Inc., in partnership with the Florida Humanities, is in its fourth week at the AACS Museum and Cultural Center.


The “Water/Ways” exhibition explores the endless motion of the water cycle – from water’s effect on the landscape, settlement and migration, to its impact on culture and spirituality.

According to a news release, the “interactive stations in the exhibition provide visitors with opportunities to explore water from both scientific and cultural perspectives as well as encourage conversations about water’s enduring impact on our daily lives.”

The exhibition is currently in its fourth week at the AACS Museum and Cultural Center and runs through Sept. 3.
