JFK Library has Exhibit on President Kennedy's Inauguration in 1961

The John F. Kennedy President Library & Museum has a great exhibit open to the public called Passing the Torch: The Inauguration of John F. Kennedy, which runs through August 2011.

This special 50th anniversary exhibit presents treasures from the ceremonial events building up to the inaugural -- JFK’s farewell to his home state of Massachusetts; his arrival in Washington at an inaugural eve gala -- and from the inaugural ceremony itself.
