The Museum Experience
Through our award-winning Main Exhibit—“Woodstock and The Sixties”—varied and engaging special exhibitions, growing collection of artifacts and reference materials, museum programs for children, youth, and adults, and the preserved historic site, the Museum immerses visitors in the story of the societal evolution of the 1960s, connecting visitors to the roots of today’s freedom of expression and the resurgent human spirit that defined the politics, music, art, and societal issues of that remarkable and challenging decade.
Museum Exhibits Sneak-Peek
Your journey through the Museum begins as the nuclear age wanes and the world stands at the brink of incredible transformation. Wind through exhibits that subtly shift with the geopolitical and cultural transformations of the decade that saw Martin Luther King, Jr. rise and fall, the Vietnam War unfold, the Summer of Love bloom, and Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. This immersive multimedia experience will take you on a journey through time with artifacts, films, music, and more. We also offer regularly scheduled tours with trained volunteers and docent.
In addition to preserving and interpreting an era, the Museum is actively involved in our community—through education, economic development, and historic preservation—to encourage social responsibility among our visitors and supporters and to advocate for issues that make Sullivan County, and the world at large, a better place. To borrow from 1960s ideology, everyone has the power to change the world.
