Explore the ways popular culture has played a major role in influencing and expressing the sentiments of generations of Americans.
This special exhibit will include a variety of artifacts on loan from the extensive collections of the National Museum of American History, National Portrait Gallery, National Air and Space Museum, and National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Superman and Lois Lane costumes worn by Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder take center stage in this exhibition. These pieces will be in good company alongside Marilyn Monroe’s fashionable white gloves, a soccer jersey worn by Mia Hamm at the 1996 Summer Olympics, Eddie Van Halen’s guitar, Julius Erving’s sneakers, the Star Trek tribbles and an original drawing of the Peanuts cartoon by Charles Schulz.
