As The National WWII Museum expands its offerings of conferences, symposia, and student and teacher residential programs, the need for a conference center and nearby hotel accommodations has become clear. Recently ranked the No. 2 museum in the world and No. 2 in the country by the 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards, the institution has also developed into a national and international travel destination. Due to this need for meeting space and increase in worldwide reputation, the Museum Board of Trustees established World War II Theatre, Inc., a wholly owned special purpose entity, and retained Hostmark Hospitality Group to manage a hotel and conference center that will support the Museum’s mission and growth.
Road to Victory 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 major project funds bricks and mortar, exhibit design and fabrication, endowment, and digitization of our collections.
