About: Baby boomers, rejoice! Visiting the Museum at Bethel Woods -- a multimedia extravaganza that celebrates the 1960s in general, and the '69 Woodstock Festival in particular -- is akin to reliving your childhood/teenage years all over again. From Vietnam and racial tensions to moon shots, transistor radios, and Twiggy, these in-depth exhibits explore the tumultuous decade in full and fascinating detail. The Woodstock section includes festival footage broadcast in a state-of-the-art theater with high-definition projection and multi-channel sound (so the younger generation can appreciate it, too). Far out, man!
