The museum has yet to reveal what Floyd fans will discover during their visit, but “You Say You Want a Revolution” will include numerous other iconic memorabilia from the era, including Wes Wilson’s 1966 The Acid Test poster, the Andy Warhol-inspired Souper Dress, images from 1969’s Woodstock festival, Lewis Morley’s photographs of Christine Keeler and a psychedelic poster for a London show by The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown from 1967.

“This major exhibition will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism,” the museum said in a statement. “The exhibition considers how the finished and unfinished revolutions of the time changed the way we live today and think about the future.”
