“Check out the tank!” “Incredible experience”

“You help keep the past alive”

These are just a few of the quotes heard from the thousands of students, grades 3 through 12, who have toured the museum over the past 20 years. Tours begin with a brief orientation lecture and video to introduce or reinforce the broader historical context of the museum’s exhibits.

During the course of their tour, visitors of all ages come away with a fuller understanding of the values, sacrifices and spirit of cooperation that contributed to the Allied victory.
