In 2012, the Nauvoo Community had the honor of hosting a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit - a true Museum on Main Street. This was accomplished by working with the Illinois Humanities Council, the Smithsonian Institution Travel Exhibition Service and many of our local and regional partners. Nauvoo's local exhibit remains in the Nauvoo Tourism Office at 1295 Mulholland Street and is on display by appointment. Nauvoo's Journey Stories exhibit covers five topics: the Catholic movement, the Mormon movement, the Icarian movement, the German movement and the taming of the Des Moines Rapids at Nauvoo.
