If you want to get transported back to the golden era of live music in Wichita Falls then the Museum of North Texas History has your tickets to this blast from the past.

It was opening night for a new exhibit at the museum, "The Golden Age of the Honky-Tonk".

The exhibit looks at various and very lively live music scenes in Wichita Falls from the 1950s through the mid 1970s.

It features memorabilia from local bands, musicians and club owners who Museum of North Texas History Executive Director Charles Campbell says would get people out of their seats and onto the dance floor.

"It does show that there was a big music scene here in the past and it's really relevant today because that's now come back," Campbell says. "There are all sorts of live music venues in Wichita Falls."

You can check out "The Golden Age of the Honky-Tonk" and other exhibits the museum has to offer for yourself Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The museum is free to the public and the exhibit will run through the end of the year.
