Flashback to the 1960s
New Exhibit Opened October 4
The Lowell Area Historical Museum is proud to announce our new special exhibit “Flashback to the 60’s-a Decade of Change.” The exhibit explores politics, fashion, music, and special happenings of the 60’s like man landing on the moon. The exhibit recalls what Lowell was doing during this turbulent and ever changing decade.
This exhibit is a distinctive reflection of what life was like in this decade. Even those not yet born in the sixties grew up listening to music from that era and can recall the major events that shaped this decade like, the assassination of President Kennedy, Civil Rights movement, space travel and major changes in technology. This exhibit is sure to have something for everyone, young or old and will be a great one to share with the kids in your life.
Exhibit opens to the public Saturday, October 4, 2014 and will run through August 2016.
