One Brief Shining Moment: JFK’s Camelot in Early Los Altos

March 23 - June 11, 2023
One Brief Shining Moment: JFK’s Camelot in Early Los Altos

In a new exhibit, Los Altos History Museum links the newly incorporated Los Altos of the 1960s with the theme of Camelot as it relates to the John F. Kennedy administration and its idyllic image of hopeful optimism and glamour. The exhibit, “One Brief Shining Moment: JFK’s Camelot in Early Los Altos,” is on display in the J. Gilbert Smith House gallery March 23 - June 11, 2023.

The exhibit will show how early government officials and civilian volunteers worked to make Los Altos the perfect community, with its small-town spirit and functional society. It also explores what made Camelot a worthy description of the JFK administration.

Visitors can view JFK memorabilia—including a signed letter from the President and a hat from his campaign—and government documents and photos of glamorous social engagements from Los Altos in the 60s. Open Thursday-Sunday, noon-4pm. Free admission.
