Gain an understanding of the culture and history of the era by viewing a detailed timeline of the day, take a disco vs. rock quiz, check out artifacts from Dahl’s personal collection, view a custom-made guitar on loan from Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, see the uniform jersey worn by White Sox catcher Mike Colbern on Disco Demolition night, watch excerpts from the 25th anniversary documentary, and more.
