Liberation Pavilion

The Museum’s highly anticipated final permanent exhibit hall, Liberation Pavilion, is now open. Over two floors of exhibit space, Liberation Pavilion explores the end of World War II, the Holocaust, the postwar years, and how the war continues to impact our lives today. The third-floor theater features a brand-new cinematic experience focused on what was at stake during World War II, the meaning of Allied victory, and subsequent generations’ responsibility to defend democracy, protect freedom, and advance human rights.

Multimedia Experience

Priddy Family Foundation Theater

The Priddy Family Foundation Freedom Theater on the third floor of Liberation Pavilion offers audiences a multimedia experience focused on what was at stake during World War II and the meaning of Allied victory. The production, developed by The Hettema Group, highlights how freedom almost vanished from the world in the 1930s and 1940s, efforts to protect and promote freedom during and after World War II, and how each generation has a responsibility to defend democracy, protect freedom, and advance human rights. At a pivotal moment in the show, the theater audience platform itself rotates.
