TO THE NATIONAL WWII MUSEUM

To help protect the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers, The National WWII Museum will temporarily close to the public, effective Saturday, March 14. At this time, we are uncertain of how long the Museum will be closed and will closely monitor national, state, and local advisories to determine when it is appropriate to reopen.
