The Americans in Wartime Museum will hold an Open House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 17 and 18, at “The Tank Farm,” 13906 Aden Road in Nokesville, Va.
The Open House is a preview of their future Museum, which will be built in Prince William County, Va.
The Americans in Wartime Museum is dedicated to telling the remarkable stories of American men and women who served during wartime – in all branches of the military and on the home front, from World War I to the present. This uniquely American museum will bring our nation’s wartime stories to life through outdoor and indoor activities, authentic Landscapes of War, operational armor and aircraft, interactive multimedia programs, living history reenactments, an oral history recording studio, an array of public programs and galleries filled with thousands of artifacts.
