The 1968 Exhibit
Traveling Exhibit
Multiple Venues - 2011-2018

The 1968 Exhibit is an ambitious, state-of-the-art exhibit that looks at how the experiences of the year fueled a persistent, if often contradictory, sense of identity for the people who were there. The exhibit is rich with over a dozen multimedia experiences, including Vietnam war stories presented in a real Huey helicopter, prominent installations about Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Democratic National Convention, a voting interactive utilizing an authentic 1960s voting machine, as well as a multi-player music quiz and a "Design your own Album Cover" kiosk.

The exhibit toured to ten venues nationally from 2011 to 2018 and was on display twice at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul at the beginning and the end of the tour. Several venues experienced record attendance while hosting the exhibit.
