The white barn on the left houses the large permanent exhibit - the Invincible Spirit.

Between these two structures are the FolkArt Exhibit and the Featured Exhibit.

On the far right is a brick building with the Electric Map and auditorium.

And behind all of this are the Conservation area, Archives, and storage.
