The Traveling Museum of WWII makes an impact and a lasting impression on everyone who sees it. Stories of bravery and heroism are told through original artifacts such as uniforms, medals, helmets, and photographs. Many of the students who see the Traveling Museum of WWII at their schools are amazed by the history and the incredible story of the war. For some, this is their first museum experience.
The Traveling Museum of WWII allows people, young and old, to come in contact with actual pieces of history from 70+ years ago. From uniforms to helmets, medals of valor, to personal letters and photographs, the museum gives people a chance to connect with the past and have a greater understanding of this incredible time in our history. Most of the pieces have been donated by veterans and their families so they are not just pieces in a museum, but actual stories Ben tells of these heroes’ lives. It is a true interactive history lesson! Our goal is to create a trailer-based mobile museum to travel the country.
