Orientation Center

The Americans in Wartime Experience experience begins at the “Orientation Theater,” where visitors explore how conflict, revolution and war have shaped the American experience and spirit. A three-dimensional presentation—featuring artifacts, imagery, voices and ambient sound—will wrap the story around the audience and provide context for visitors before they explore the rest of the Experience.
