The Vietnam War. Civil rights and women’s lib. MLK and RFK. Janis and Jimi. Laugh-In and love-ins. Bringing one of America’s most colorful, chaotic, culture-shifting years vividly to life, The 1968 Exhibit illuminates the power of “We the People” to exercise and expand our freedoms.

Visitors will travel through 12 exhibition areas corresponding to the months of the year—as well as three lounge spaces (bean bag chairs included) inviting interaction with 1968’s most enduring and influential music, movies, fashions, and more. Whether you remember the year personally or discovered Hendrix online, The 1968 Exhibit will rock you.
