The young (and young at heart) will love the Phantasy Landscape, where you have to take off your shoes to wander through a soft foam environment. You can hear the Jefferson Airplane in the background as you take this disorienting trip, with its vibrant colors and uneven footing. There is also a psychedelic floor mat, but it's just for looking, not trying out.
Much of the exhibit will resonate with adults who drank of the electric Kool Aid. One room, great for little kids, has a liquid crystal light display, with pillows scattered on a carpeted floor. Even if your kids are too young to understand about the summer of love, and even if you are too young to have participated, you can enjoy this look back at the '60s. We may never see its like again.
