The Americans in Wartime Museum will be engaging and interactive. Through an immersive environment, visitors of all ages will gain a deeper understanding of their nation’s unique wartime experience, the courage and sacrifice of their fellow countrymen, and the impact on their own lives.
The Museum will tell a distinctly American story and involve visitors in a variety of ways:
- Crafting a vividly personal voice, emphasizing individual experiences.
- Exploring all branches of the military through the eyes of Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen in various settings: training, marshalling, combat and homecoming.
- Weaving home front and battleground stories to illustrate the unbreakable bond between those at home and those in uniform.
- Featuring the Landscapes of War—authentic wartime settings that will enlighten visitors about the frontline cultures and conditions experienced by our service men and women.
- Recreating the character of the times and the experiences of the American people through the lens of war from World War I forward.
- Hosting reenactments, live-action events and other activities that bring these stories to life.
