Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum Opens New Temporary Exhibit

By Ryan Duey

A new temporary exhibit, Cold War: Soviets, Spies, and Secrets, is now open at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene, in the Special Exhibits Gallery.

The Cold War dominated every facet of postwar 20th-century Western life. Bomb shelters, air raid drills, and draft cards were as American as apple pie. Spies infiltrated the highest levels of government on both sides, while the superpowers stockpiled nuclear weapons.

This exhibit, originally curated by the Nixon Presidential Foundation and Library, is open through March 2025. To learn more or plan your trip, visit their website for more informatio
