The Deaf HERstory exhibition by the National Deaf Life Museum was located at the Museum Annex – Weyerhaeuser Family Gallery area at the lower level at the Student Academic Center from the summer of 2015 until March 3, 2017. The exhibition was replaced by the exhibition Deaf Difference + Space Survival.

Deaf HERstory will become a virtual exhibition in the near future.
