"This exhibit was created in remembrance of the fifty-fifth anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and it has been very well-received by our visitors, who are intrigued to see the evolution of how the President has continued to be memorialized over the decades," said Nicola Longford, Chief Executive Officer. "Extending this exhibit affords more people the opportunity to view items from our collection that are not typically on display."

Located on the seventh floor and composed of artifacts from the Museum's collections, 55 Years conveys President Kennedy's lasting imprint on our nation's consciousness. Arranged by decade, the fifty-seven magazine covers range from immediately after the assassination in 1963 through 2018.

During his lifetime, President Kennedy regularly appeared on magazines that both flattered and criticized him, but immediately upon his death, critical coverage became rare and imagery of the President reflected a commemorative, nostalgic tone. As the memory and mood of the nation shifted over the decades, Kennedy's legacy was both questioned and revered, and he has become an idealized symbol of an aspirational era.

The publications on display reflect a cross-section of society and a broad spectrum of content and perspectives, with glossy mass-market pictorial magazines such as LIFE and LOOK, popular magazines including Time, Newsweek, Esquire, Good Housekeeping,JET and Vanity Fair, and niche publications like National Lampoon and Cigar Aficionado. Regional/local print media includes Texas Monthly and D Magazine, while foreign language titles include Life en Espanõl (Central and South America issues) and Paris Match. Each brings a unique point of view to the remembrance of the president, yet together create a nuanced portrayal of how President Kennedy has continued to inspire over the past 55 years since his death.

Also on display on the seventh floor is a wall of 17 artifacts from the Museum's collections that link the mourning and legacy of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. to that of President Kennedy. Both Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated in 1968. The images and impact of President Kennedy, Senator Kennedy and Dr. King are forever linked to the decade of the 1960s.

Admission to 55 Years is included with general Museum admission.
