Group Guided Tour
The Museum now offers an exclusive group tour of the Campaigns of Courage Pavilion, where the Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries and Road to Tokyo: Pacific Theater Galleries address the heart of the Museum’s mission of telling the story of the American Experience in World War II in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn. This exclusive small-group experience offers an official Museum guide taking your group through the chronological narrative of each theater of combat, bringing to life the drama, sacrifices, personal stories, and strategies of America’s campaign to defeat the Axis powers and preserve freedom. Your guide will also highlight several artifacts, displays, and exhibits during the tour, which explores how US citizen soldiers and their Allies secured victory in the 20th century’s titanic struggle—a fight for civilization itself.
