So Ready for Laughter

The Legacy of Bob Hope

So Ready for Laughter: The Legacy of Bob Hope, the Museum’s newest special exhibit, tells the story of Hope’s unique place in the history of World War II and beyond, and the contributions he made that still reverberate more than 70 years later. Using multimedia elements and captivating storytelling—including artifacts, films, photographs, and interactive displays— the exhibit highlights how Hope helped lift the human spirit during one of the darkest times in American history.

Supported by the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation. With special thanks to the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum.
