John F. Kennedy Exhibit
November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, is one of the dates in American history, along with Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 attacks, where nearly every American remembers their exact location and what they were doing when the awful news broke. It was also the first major event in our country’s history to be covered in depth by the new technology of television, bringing the tragedy right into the living room of nearly every American household.
The Frankenmuth Historical Association commemorates the 50th anniversary of this terrible event with a special exhibit entitled “Kennedy”, a tribute to the life and legacy of America’s 35th President. Through rare photographs, text panels, video footage, and artifacts, visitors will experience the life of John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy from his early childhood as one of nine siblings in an Irish Catholic family, to his success as a young writer, and through his heroic exploits in WWII as a naval officer in the Pacific; from his meteoric rise to the top political office in the country, through the challenges he faced both home and abroad during his presidency to his tragic assassination in Dallas and the controversial aftermath. You will meet not only Kennedy the President, but also Kennedy the husband, father, and brother.
The “Kennedy” exhibit runs through the end of 2013 and admission is included in the normal Frankenmuth Historical Association museum admission of $2/adult, $1/student, or $5/family. In addition, any paid admission gets that guest a free admission to the Lager Mill Museum of Frankenmuth’s Brewing History, located just down the street.
