ARCHIVAL RESEARCH:

dividing bar

The National WWII Museum’s Department of Collections and Exhibits welcomes researchers to access our archival and artifact collections. Though our services are most appropriate for clients with targeted subjects and in advanced stages of their projects, all inquiries are welcome. At this time we offer limited public access to our non-circulating collection as there is yet no online access to our collections database. Please see our fee schedule below for requesting images.
