The museum also boasts the second largest 9/11 collection in the world. It contains artifacts from the World Trade Center ad the Pentagon. It also has the second largest collection of Holocaust memorabilia in the nation. They are currently trying to raise funds to expand the already large museum to fit all of the artifacts. Exhibits that are already in use include ones on 1776, the Civil War, World War 1, World War 2, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm, NASA, Medals, and a POW exhibit.
This museum is very important for the reason that it educates the public on the history of war in America, and it recognizes veterans and servicemen still serving (2). The museum houses military equipment from different wars, which is a great way to show people how wars were fought. It also contains a memorial brick garden with the names of hose who were Honorably Discharged and current U.S. Military members. Every year, more is added in order to bring in as much history and information as possible to the public. For those interested in learning about the history of American wars and discovering first hand accounts, this is the place to go.
