Sixty From The '60s, was an original exhibit displayed from March 15 through January 4, 2015 at the LBJ Library, which featured iconic photographs, historic objects and documents, books, clothing, posters, and artwork related to sixty Americans who made an impact on this seminal era and whose work continues to be relevant today. From arts and entertainment to social activism and civil rights, science and health to business and industry, it was these individuals who made a fundamental difference in American life. 

See original lyrics written by Bob Dylan, a Telstar satellite, a dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s communications headset, a boxing glove worn and signed by Muhammad Ali, and an original Peanuts comic strip – just to name a few of the many cultural icons that were on display. As visitors explored the exhibit, they also heard a soundtrack of songs from the 60s chosen as the best of that decade by renowned musical artists and the public.

Unlike our other temporary exhibits, "Sixty From The '60s" included some touchable items designed to provide unique photo opportunities for our visitors:

  • A full-size Ronald McDonald
  • "Kid-size" Peanuts™ characters – Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Snoopy with Woodstock
  • A working jukebox filled with music from the '60s
