Remembering the '60s at the National Museum of American History

We hear a lot these days about the 1860s and the sesquicentennial of this Civil War battle or that anti-slavery proclamation, but let's not forget the turbulent days of the 1960s.  The Smithsonian Museum of American History on the Mall certainly isn't going to forget the Sixties, since this year they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their opening in 1964.  Accordingly, they are sponsoring a number of exhibits focusing on the life, culture, science, politics, etc. of the American nation a half-century ago, and on how the Museum has evolved since those days.  You're invited to join with members of the Chrysalis Arts & Culture Group of Washington on this museum visit.  We'll meet at 1:30 p.m. on this final day of the Fourth of July Weekend by the Information Desk in the Constitution Avenue lobby between 12th & 14th Streets  NW.  Free. Refreshments, hopefully including American ice cream, follow.

    We're meeting at 1:30 p.m. by the Information Desk inside the Constitution Avenue lobby of the American History Museum between 12th & 14th Streets NW. I'll be wearing a red baseball cap with the Curly W logo of the Washington Nationals baseball team. We'll probably give ourselves 75-90 minutes to see the Museum's exhibits related to life in the 1960s. By 3 p.m. we should be ready to find refreshments (hopefully including ice cream) in one of the Museum's eateries.

    I'll have information on other Chrysalis events scheduled for later this month, including our July 19 excursion to the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, PA.

    If anyone has any questions, feel free to e-mail me directly at: [masked]. FYI, I'll be leading an out-of-town trip all day Saturday and won't be home until late.
