1917: How One Year Changed the World looks back 100 years to explore how the dramatic events of a single year brought about fundamental changes in American politics and culture that reverberated throughout the world and still impact us today.

It is the first exhibition to demonstrate how three key events of that year — America's entry into World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the signing of the Balfour Declaration, in which Great Britain indicated support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine — brought about political, cultural, and social changes that dramatically reshaped the United States' role in the world and directly affected everyday Americans.
