A photo booth gives museum visitors the opportunity to frame themselves within 1960s poster art and take their souvenir home.
After capturing a photograph of themselves, visitors can composite their image into an assortment of ’60s-inspired rock posters using zooming and positioning tools. These fun, colorful posters are available for purchase as prints or emails that can be sent directly from the booth.

But this is a 21st century museum dominated by sounds and moving images. It’s hard to find a spot where you can’t overhear a crowd chant or a guitar solo pumping from one exhibit or another. There are five interactive exhibits and 20 films playing here, from kiosk shorts to the 50-foot high, wraparound movie that provides a you-are-there version of the concert.“Taking in the Woodstock Museum,” Time Magazine, Richard Lacayo, May 29, 2008
And the museum itself? It’s entertaining and briskly informative...if you visit the museum, which I recommend, here’s what I would do: play with the interactive screens, admire the replica hippie bus, watch the film clips of Jimi Hendrix and Joan Baez and the Who.
