Even those who weren't there will never forget it. In 1969, more than 400,000 descended on Bethel, New York, for three days of peace, love, music, and mud: Woodstock. Today, a not-for-profit cultural center houses a museum devoted to that legendary event remains. It fittingly hosts live concerts and other events, but the real draw is a collection of promotional material, film footage, and other artifacts from the most important concert of the 20th century.
