Through 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 makes the lessons and ideals of the sixties relevant and accessible today.
The Main Exhibit: The Story of Woodstock and the '60s
At 6,728 square feet, The Main Exhibit Gallery holds the permanent exhibit which includes 20 films, five interactive productions, 164 artifacts on display, more than 300 photographic murals, and dozens of interpretive text panels. Discover the iconic fashion of the 1960s, listen to music from the era, and watch a series of films that bring history to life with original footage featuring the people, stories, sights, and music of the three-day Woodstock Festival. Woodstock: The Music shows, for the first time ever, high-definition footage of the best performances from the Woodstock Music and Art Fair told from the perspective of the performers themselves, as well as contemporary artists from today.
