MOLINE, Ill. (KWQC) -There is a one-of-a-kind mobile museum visiting the Quad Cities this week. The Mobile Museum of Tolerance will be on display in the north parking lot at the Moline Public Library, 3210 41st Street, Moline, from Sept. 28-30.

Bringing the unique “museum on wheels” to the Quad Cities is part of Moline Public Library’s contribution to the community-wide Out of Darkness project,

Lisa Powell, Moline Public Library Coordinator, talks about the exhibit’s purpose--to inspire and empower people, of all ages and backgrounds, to raise their voices and combat anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, hate, and intolerance and to promote human dignity.

The Mobile Museum of Tolerance, from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, utilizes innovative technology and interactive lessons as a way to strive toward positive social change. Learn more about MMOT at mmot.com
