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
Thanks to a generous gift from our sponsor Pritzker Military Museum and Library, The National WWII Museum is thrilled to offer the March 5-6, 2021, International Conference on World War II 100% virtually and completely free of charge. While we are grateful to have the Museum campus open and safely serving our guests, we recognize that many are cautiously still waiting before they resume travel. This exclusive, one-time-only, free, virtual program will continue the tradition of bringing robust educational sessions from world-renowned speakers to our audience, this time in an easily accessible, online format. These sessions will be streamed live, and recorded sessions will be available on demand after they air.
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."
