COMING SOON to a Museum near YOU!  

“Voices from our SIsters”, a multimedia exhibit opening September 2 at the City of Raleigh (COR) Museum features citizens from our Sister Cities sharing stories about their lives and their cities.  According to Ernest Dollar, director of the COR Museum, this exhibit hopes to engage Raleigh residents in global travel, initially through this virtual display and, through the citizen exchanges facilitated by RSC.  Look for greetings from British luminaries, sailing ships on the Baltic, walks through Royal Forests and much more.
