Out of The Vault

Artifact Presentation with Private Access to THE JOHN E. KUSHNER RESTORATION PAVILION

The National WWII Museum’s private Center for Collections & Archives is excited to present rarely seen artifacts from our vault, not available for public viewing,  which give voice to the American experience in World War II. Hosted by a Museum curator, this exclusive experience will allow guests a behind-the-scenes look at Museum artifacts not currently on display. The presentation will include detailed descriptions of the processes used to preserve and store the Center’s rare artifacts, as well as insight into the work that goes into developing the Museum’s exhibits and programs.

*This exclusive experience is offered on select dates and times, based on availability.
