A couple weekends ago Kevin and I went to the Heinz History Center to see the 1968 exhibit. It was so awesome and better than I expected. It was a pretty big exhibit, and was filled with videos, music, memorabilia, pictures, and more all about the year 1968. Kev and I went to the Woodstock museum in Bethel, NY last year, so I assumed it would be something like that. There were different "rooms" set up, new clips from the assassinations of MLK and RFK, a real army helicopter from the Vietnam war, a woman's "freedom can" filled with birth control, bras, and female things, and so many other cool pieces of history. It was fun and informative--and caters to all age groups. One of my favorite parts was the old voting machine they had--you could go in and cast your vote for your favorite candidate--I of course picked Bobby Kennedy, Kev picked Ronald Reagan, ugh. Anyway, if you're in Pittsburgh, definitely check it out--it's through May 12. Be sure to browse the rest of the museum as well!
