About The 1968 Exhibit The 1968 Exhibit is a major traveling expedition that explores the causes and legacies of the year’s non-stop barrage of events, and is on view at The Durham February 8 – May 4. Developed by the Minnesota History Center, in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum and the Oakland Museum of California, The 1968 Exhibit is an ambitious, multimedia exhibit that looks at how the events of the year have fueled a persistent, if often contradictory sense of identity for the people who were there and those who came after. The year 1968 was a turning point for a generation coming of age and a nation at war, and the aftermath can still be felt today.
