Worthwhile Museum to see. Takes you back to the 60's. Very nostalgic and interesting. Lots of interesting films throughout the exhibit. Takes you back in time. Go Downstairs to Don Hippie clothing and take photographs.

Take the time to check out the grounds as well as the Museum. Seeing the field where the Festival took place puts the whole experience into perspective. Imagine all those people together on a not-as-large-an-area as you might have pictured in your mind! Closet you...More

We spent a couple of hours viewing the indoor exhibits. I especially enjoyed the film in the large theatre; plan your visit around the film schedule since it doesn't play continuously. There are numerous short films in this museum; some near seating, some not. I...More
