1960s continues with Part II examining this tumultuous time in America with a focus on pop culture. Visitors will be greeted with what we will call the colorful side of American culture. Sports, entertainment, music, arts and literature, and fashion are not only reflected in the times but helped to serve as a platform for individuals looking to make a statement about the world around them. From the Beatles to Bond there will be a little of everything to spark your interest.

Now It is War After Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, President Roosevelt declared war. The declaration of war “awakened a sleeping giant.” Thousands of new recruits enlisted. The manufacturing switched over to wartime production. Needs for employees increased. All this helped America pull out of the Great Depression and enter a time of new challenges.

This hands-on exhibit incorporated favorites from the past and prototypes for the future.
