80th Anniversary of D-Day

Commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day at the NVMM! Experience first-hand one of the most pivotal moments of World War II with reenactors on the lawn and throughout the Museum, and hands-on activities include creating a working parachute for an Army figure and making a D-Day paratrooper clicker.

At 3 p.m., join us for a program featuring Beyond the Call’s new D-Day documentary film and insightful conversations with historians and curators from the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and Air Force Research Lab. They will focus on the role of the U.S. Army Air Forces clearing the skies on D-Day and their role in supporting the Army as Allied forces moved through Europe.

Don’t miss our newest traveling exhibition, Ghost Army: The Combat Con Artists of World War II, exclusively sponsored by the E.L. Wiegand Foundation, which shares the story of a top-secret unit. These unsung heroes of the U.S. Army 23rd Headquarters Special Troops mastered the art of battlefield deception, using creativity and cunning to outwit the enemy and protect countless Allied lives.
