In addition to the knowledge and resources housed on our six-acre campus, the Museum also annually gathers prestigious historians and speakers from across the globe for various enlightening conferences and symposia, including the renowned International Conference on World War II, hosted in New Orleans each year.
International Conference on World War II
Built on the successes of the Museum’s 70th Anniversary of World War II Conference Series, the Museum decided to break out of the mold of yearly anniversary-themed conferences. Rather than focusing on one year in the war, a particular battle or campaign, or one specific individual each year, the 2017 International Conference on World War II will address the Museum’s mission statement, and impart why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today.
Our veteran volunteers present a dynamic, insider's view of the war and a preview of the artifacts, exhibits and displays of the Museum designated by the United States Congress as America's official museum of the Second World War.
Winston S. Churchill Symposium
A well-attended Museum event since 2011, the Winston S. Churchill Symposium is a daylong program that draws people from around the country to learn about the man who was voted "The Greatest Briton of the 20th Century."
