United States Diplomacy Center

Collections & Exhibits


Coming Soon!



What types of artifacts represent U.S. diplomacy?  USDC's collection of over 6,000 items aims to answer that question.  Artifacts backed by good stories help illustrate how diplomacy is grounded in day-to-day activities performed by real people.

The collections range from the 18th century to the present.  View examples of artifacts in the USDC collections:

USDC's exhibits draw on these artifacts that tell the story of American diplomacy - from its present-day practice and challenges to its storied history.  Currently, USDC staff is focused on developing exhibits for the future museum.
