We strive to educate the public about the American sacrifices made during the world’s largest conflict of the 20th century, both on the battlefield and on the homefront, and honor their dedication to win the war and preserve freedom.
Here we can experience a wide variety of authentic WWII vehicles, uniforms and artifacts in realistic dioramas and exhibits that portray, not just the battlefield, but the home front as well. Take in a re-enactment or one of our living history programs available as well as speakers, seminars, interactive offerings and simulated and real vehicle experiences.
