1968: The Year That Rocked America Exhibit

photos by Quelcy Kogel

Have you seen the 1968 exhibit happening at the Heinz History Center? I saw it briefly during Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer then I decided to go back so I could spend more time looking at everything.
The exhibit is really impressive and interactive. You can listen to actual audio at different stations, check out items from that era, photographs, records, fashion, historic facts and more. I was born 10 years later but I really appreciate this and through my parents, I have heard a lot about the changes that took place. I noticed while walking around people talking about their memories in that time.

Actual helicopter from the Vietnam war.

Beer, food, knife and more from the war

I especially loved the design of the icons and signage.

I want this for my wall!

The first time I saw this statue of Mister Rogers, I started to cry a little bit.

This kitchen is actually upstairs but I had to add it in!

This exhibit is closing on May 12th, I sincerely recommend checking it out! There’s so much more to take in that I could even put in one post! I want to thank Quelcy Kogel of the awesome site With The Grains and the Heinz History Center.
