Action Intro

Past Special Exhibition:

The Library's current special exhibition is an immersive experience that evokes the nation's desperation in the midst of the Great Depression and the tremendous energy and hope generated by President Roosevelt in the dramatic weeks after he took office. It uses dramatic audiovisual productions and rarely-seen historical documents, artifacts, photographs, and posters from the collections at the FDR Library and Museum to vividly recall life in America during the historic first months of the Roosevelt administration.

The exhibit opened on March 4, 2008 — the 75th anniversary of FDR's first inauguration. It remains on view in the William J. vanden Heuvel Special Exhibitions Gallery through March 31, 2010. The exhibit is funded by the Roosevelt Institute.
