Join us as we celebrate the opening of Downstream, a new exhibition that explores more than 200 years of water analysis and water protection.

See fine art, advertisements, films, posters, and photographs that capture efforts to understand water. And learn how our museum uses objects as diverse as wooden pipes, scientific instruments, insects, and a 16-foot 1964 model of the Delaware River basin to reveal the historical relationships between knowledge, activism, and action.

Admission is free, and registration is strongly encouraged. Light refreshments will be served.
