The map below provides the locations of the current Voyage Communities, each with an installed Voyage exhibition, and Voyage Communities in Progress, with an exhibition currently under contract and in fabrication. The map also provides the locations of those Voyage Emerging Sites that are not yet under contract, but have either submitted or are working on their formal Implementation Plans. Explore Voyage in these communities using the links below the map. Each community has a dedicated webpage with information about the lead and partner institutions, a community overview, the location of the exhibition, and Preliminary Site Maps showing how the exhibition lays out on Google Earth images of the community.
