NOW OPEN is the groundbreaking, multi-million dollar Take a Stand Center, one of the Museum’s permanent exhibitions. This innovative exhibition has a forward-looking emphasis on multiple areas of social justice and includes the interactive Survivor Stories Experience theater, featuring Dimensions in Testimony, developed by USC Shoah Foundation in association with Illinois Holocaust Museum. Four interactive galleries guide visitors through contemporary social justice issues, empowering and inspiring our guests with knowledge and tools to stand against hatred in all its forms.
