The Arsenal of Democracy: The Herman and George Brown Salute to the Home Front

Now Open!

Telling the story of how the war was won is at the heart of The National WWII Museum’s mission, and The Arsenal of Democracy: The Herman and George Brown Salute to the Home Front—a new permanent exhibit on the second level of Louisiana Memorial Pavilion, the Museum’s original building—literally brings that story home.

The exhibit joins the WWII narrative that visitors experience across the Museum’s six-acre campus, with galleries that explore the road to war and then how the war was fought on the Home Front. Allied victory was an epic undertaking fueled by stateside industry, ingenuity, and the labor of millions of patriotic Americans. Through multimedia and interactive displays, and drawing on artifacts and oral histories from the Museum’s extensive collections, The Arsenal of Democracy creates countless opportunities for visitors to make personal connections with the men and women who helped win the war.

Purchase your tickets now to be among the first to see this amazing new exhibit!
