Overview
Additional Information

The temporary exhibition 1960s: The Generation of Love and War invites visitors to take a journey back in time to examine some of the major topics and events that occurred during the 1960s and how it impacted the Rockford area. It was a decade of rapid societal change as the idyllic post-war 1950s ceded to conflicting values on war, race, wealth, and societal norms.

The artifacts on display will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn more about some of the influential events of the decade, view some of the grooviest fashion trends, reminisce about favorite childhood games, and look back on some old musical favorites.

This exhibition will run from December 22, 2017- February 28, 2018 in the Museum’s Special Exhibit Gallery.
