The National WWII Museum's capital expansion is made possible by a $400 million capital expansion plan—The Road to Victory Capital Campaign. This project funds bricks and mortar, exhibit design and fabrication, endowment, and digitization of our collections. To date, we’ve raised $316.1 million toward our goal.
Road to Victory Capital Campaign
The National WWII Museum's capital expansion is made possible by a $400 million capital campaign—The Road to Victory: A Vision for Future Generations. This project funds bricks and mortar, exhibit design and fabrication, endowment, and digitization of our collections. To date, we’ve raised $316.1 million toward our goal.
Our capital expansion is designed to elevate the Museum experience to new heights. See what we have in store for the future.
In the last seven years, the Museum has celebrated new additions to our six-acre campus. Our newest permanent exhibit, The Arsenal of Democracy: The Herman and George R. Brown Salute to the Home Front, opened in June 2017.
Museum curators have recorded more than 9,000 unique personal accounts and collected more than 130,000 photographs and digital images. Recording these stories is only the first step—the subsequent dissemination of these materials will bring invaluable insight and learning for future generations.
Our capital expansion is made possible by our committed donors. We honor those dedicated to the Museum mission: telling the American experience in the war that changed the world.
The endowment of The National WWII Museum was established in order for the institution to meet current goals and to ensure that resources would be available to meet future needs of our expanding exhibits, infrastructure, and staff.

The Museum receives no government funding for our ongoing operating expenses, therefore we depend heavily on admission revenue and donations to pay the bills. With every $10 you donate, you will help cover the cost of admission for WWII veterans and the resources it takes to ensure their stories are never forgotten.
With a brick at The National WWII Museum, you have a unique opportunity to create a lasting tribute to loved ones who served their country.
