Presented by Doctors Without Borders, “Forced From Home” is a free interactive exhibition designed to raise public awareness of the world’s 65 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 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 designed to raise public awareness about the experience of refugees and internally displaced people, and provides us with an opportunity to speak out on behalf of our many patients around the world who may not have a way to speak for themselves.

Duration of Tour: one hour; walk up any time between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to join the next available tour
