It was truly a trip back in time to be at this museum. As I told one of the docents who showed me how to navigate the touch-screen monitor in the World Leaders room, these were the people making history when I was in school. It was the time of the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and the first man on the moon.

A Trip Back in TIME with Richard Nixon (1952-1994) (text from magazine cover display in entrance court)
"Richard Nixon appeared on the cover of TIME 54 times — more than anyone else in history. His first cover was in 1952, when he was nominated for Vice President. TIME's last RN cover was published the week of his death in April 1994. This survey of an extraordinary era of American history, and of the extraordinary career of one of its most influential statesmen, was made possible by a gift of original covers by TIME Inc."
