Hall of Democracy

At The National WWII Museum

As The National WWII Museum continues to expand its educational mission to share the complete story of the American experience in World War II with learners across the globe, the institution recently marked a major milestone with the grand opening of its newest pavilion: Hall of Democracy. This pavilion represents more than simply inching closer toward completing the Museum’s physical campus. The Hall of Democracy represents an exciting new chapter in which the Museum expands beyond brick and mortar to ensure the legacies of World War II reach communities across the country, and continue to have a meaningful impact.

The Hall of Democracy helps to ensure future growth of the Museum and transformative opportunities to broaden its educational mission through new programming, scholarly research, special exhibits, distance learning, digital initiatives, and preservation efforts. The pavilion demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to carrying the legacies of World War II into present day, and exploring the joys and costs of victory, the horrors of the Holocaust, and the war’s continuing effects on our nation.

As head of the Nazis’ homicidal “Jewish Department,” Eichmann zealously managed the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps and vanished after World War II.
