Step back to the 1940s and honor the everyday men and women who found the courage to achieve the extraordinary. During your visit to the United States' official World War II Museum, learn about the harsh yet rewarding days as America fought the war that changed the world.
Experience the war through the eyes of the millions of soldiers in uniform and countless civilians doing their part on the home front. Exhibits cover a global scale of the Allied and Axis forces and a detailed timeline of the war's events. For an interactive experience, act as a crew member in the Final Mission: USS Tang Submarine Experience and plunge into the complex submarine warfare used by the Pacific Fleet.
After perusing the museum's 100,000-artifact collection, head to the Malcolm Forbes Theater for 2 exclusive films, D-Day Remembered (Normandy) and Price for Peace (the Pacific)—each 45 minutes long with alternating showings every half hour. Don't miss Beyond All Boundaries, the exclusive 4-D panoramic film narrated by Tom Hanks.
This immersive museum presents intimate and personal stories to an international audience, showcasing authentic World War II artifacts and inspiring future generations to learn from the most complex military operation ever staged.
