Plan Your Visit

Exiled to Motown is coming to two locations in southeastern Michigan in 2019, where you’ll be able to walk through our self-guided 14-panel exhibit at your own pace.

A dark-toned poster with "EXILED TO MOTOWN" in bold diagonal print.

The displays are written in English, printed in large format, and are wheelchair accessible. For other accessibility concerns, please contact the venue directly.
