Take a step back into the period between 1920 and 1940 as an affluent era erupted in America.

Many soldiers were returning home after World War I with memories and culture they had seen in Europe and Asia.

This period that followed the war was a time of worldwide learning. America began to connect to Europe through the music, industry designers and fashion that made its way to American shores.

Americans began to travel back to Europe to reestablish a connection to the Old World culture.

As the movement of culture, music and fashion spread from Europe to America between 1950 and 1970, many Americans would travel 7 days to Europe aboard cruise liners. English, French and even American cruise liners fitted their ships appropriately as they were the first taste of Europe that Americans would be exposed too.

Visitors will travel back to a period vibrant with culture, fashion, art and music at the unveiling of the Grand World Tour. The experience will begin at 6 p.m. in the great room at the A.W. Buckbee Center on Thursday, July 21, and will be open through the summer.

Experience the fashion and stories that follows the American people as they travel from Europe to America and back to Europe again. Witness how the culture and fashion transforms American living.
