"Our Lives, Our Stories: America's Greatest Generation"

November 20, 2010 March 16, 2011

This traveling exhibit focuses on the generation born in the 1910s and 1920s; they lived through the Depression, fought in World War II, and created the "baby boom." This exhibit sets the scene and will transport you back in time to hang out at the soda fountain or in a 1950s kitchen. Discover how your grandparents, parents, and next-door neighbors changed America.
