Join us to check out this great exhibition at Melbourne Museum!

Revolutions: Records and Rebels looks at the late 1960s as a moment when youth culture drove optimistic idealism, motivating people to come together and question the establishment across every area of society.

More than 500 objects from the V&A and Museums Victoria's own collection will take visitors on an immersive ride through the events, voices and technological advancements that defined the cultural and political vanguard of the period - from the fashion, art and music of Swinging London, to anti-Vietnam War protests, to the fight for civil rights and recognition of Australia's First Peoples in the 1967 referendum, to communal moments such as Woodstock and Sunbury.

Highlights on display include John Lennon's iconic glasses and the suit worn on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the original illustration of the Beatles' "Revolutions" artwork and handwritten lyrics for "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"; Mick Jagger's signature stage costume and a guitar smashed on stage by The Who's Pete Townshend.

Tickets: $29 (including Museum entry) Purchase online prior or at the door.
