The exhibit, originally set to close this month, will now continue through January 2020.
“Special Olympics at 50” highlights our history through the stories of four athletes—Loretta Claiborne, Lee Dockins, Marty Sheets and Ricardo Thornton—along with founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Included in the display are personal items and memorabilia that bring their stories to life.
This extended time means the Special Olympics display can now by seen by an estimated two million more people! “Special Olympics at 50”—which opened in July 2018—may be found next to the museum’s biggest draw: the original Star-Spangled Banner. For more info.
