The 70s: Heavy, Hip and Happenin'


February 27–May 4, 2019 

Defined by events like the Watergate scandal, the fall of Saigon and the Iran hostage crisis, the 1970s was a decade of turbulence. Social movements for women's rights and the environment were juxtaposed against disco music and sitcoms. Politics began to become divisive, technology took a giant leap forward, and we experienced a loss of innocence. Join us as we explore the rich history of the 1970s through exhibits, displays, presentations and interactive events.
