Scout Week

Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Scouts BSA, and beyond have their own week at The National WWII Museum, with free admission to every Scout in uniform and reduced cost for family members. On these days, Scouts can tour our exhibits and galleries and enjoy a variety of exciting virtual activities designed just for them.


All levels of Scouts, along with their families, are invited to join us for The National WWII Museum’s annual Scout Week! This program is designed for Scouts to tour the Museum’s exhibits, explore the history and lessons of World War II, and participate in various activities around the Museum. Uniformed scouts will enjoy free admission and reduced cost for family members on our Museum Campus Pass.

Uniformed Scouts = Free
Non-Scout Children = $5 per child
Adults with Scouts = $10 per adult

Register for Scout Week here to visit us in person at the Museum. For those visiting the Museum campus, we will have a free National WWII Museum fun patch available to each Scout and Scout leader! Please check at the Guest Services desk to pick up your patch. Supplies are limited to one patch per Scout.

Scouts are also invited to attend two in-person Badge Workshops on the Museum’s campus. While the workshops are designed to meet the needs of particular Scout Badges, any Scout is welcome to attend the workshops with a supervising family member or Troop Leader. The number of participants for each workshop will be limited, so reserve your spot now!
