The Americans in Wartime Museum will host its annual open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 4 and 5, 2014, at “The Tank Farm,” 13906 Aden Road, Nokesville, VA.  The family-friendly event, which is open to the public, is a preview of the future Museum, which is being built in Prince William County, Virginia.

This year’s event features new demonstrations and a flyover by a WWII P-51 Mustang fighter. Visitors will also have a chance to see the Museum’s new Oral History Mobile Studio, “The Voices of Freedom.” Suggested donation for attending is $10/adult with children attending free.
