The National World War II Museum Tour (Thursday a.m.)
Today’s tour will take you to the city’s finest historical attraction—the National World War II Museum. This landmark museum celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage, and sacrifice of the men and women who won World War II. Corporate sponsors, as well as veterans and their families, donated an impressive collection of artifacts from the Battle of D-Day and subsequent campaign. State-of-the-art interactive exhibits include oral histories from veterans worldwide, artifacts, documents, photographs, hands-on activities, and never-seen-before film footage.
During your visit you will have the chance to view the award winning documentary, Beyond All Boundaries, the Museum’s signature 4D cinematic experience. Presented on a 120-foot immersive screen, this 50-minute multi-sensory film tells the tale of the Greatest Generation’s journey from Pearl Harbor to America’s final victory in the War That Changed the World.
