1968 Exhibit
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:44:24 PM »
Over the weekend, I visited the traveling "1968" exhibit at the Minnesota History Museum. 
http://www.the1968exhibit.org/about-exhibit

The exhibit broke 1968 up into each month and then discussed the notable events.  In the "January" section, I saw a picture of Fred Rogers, as Jan 1968 was the premier of MRN.  Mention was made of the premier.  And in the TV area, where clips of 1968 TV shows were played, the clip montage ended with Mister Rogers singing "Tomorrow" from the first episode (complete song). I also noticed that there were clips of the model neighborhood, of Fred visting Mrs. Russelite, and a NOM segment (all from first episode).

Check out the exhibit if it comes to your neighborhood!
