Presented by Doctors Without Borders, Forced From Home is a free interactive exhibition designed to raise public awareness of the world’s 60 million refugees. With an experienced Doctors Without Borders aid worker as your guide, you’ll see, hear, and interact with  images, stories, and materials gathered from refugee camps, rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. During the one hour tour you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those who have been forced from their homes, and the humanitarian solutions offered by Doctors Without Borders. Forced From Home is free, fully accessible, and open to the public. School field trips are welcome.

Important registration information

Registering in advance ensures that you will be able to tour the exhibit at your preferred time. If the tour time slot you want is marked SOLD OUT, you can still come and join the “walk-up” line. There are seven tours each hour and we’ll keep spaces open in each for walk-up attendees.
