Americans in Wartime Experience

An ‘experiential’ museum? Yes!

(Actually, calling it a museum doesn’t really do it justice. This a whole new thing.)

Smell the diesel. Hear (and literally feel) the rumble of any of more than 100 different fully-operational tanks and military vehicles. Climb on the exhibits. Ride in a tank. Explore outdoor Landscapes of War that will transport you to a different time and place. Learn of the sacrifices made by men and women in all walks of life during times of conflict. Listen to their first-hand stories—or contribute your own! Honor and learn about the past, in a living, experiential way. Here’ what to expect:
