A Special Event: The Forgotten Front – Women at War
March 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Meet active-duty and retired veterans at our Veterans Panel, where female American patriots will share stories of their experience serving in various branches of our armed forces. Greet our talented Living History Reenactors, who prove that all the world is a stage as they transform our ships into dramatic platforms that come alive with their stirring recreations of moments from the battles of yore. Discover the world’s largest collection of naval ships as you race with your compatriots to complete an exciting scavenger hunt. Completed entries will be entered for a drawing to win a ‘Rosie the Riveter” doll and t-shirt. Explore our Women Protecting US exhibit on board USS Massachusetts. See authentic WWII women’s uniforms from each of the branches of service, and learn how women made invaluable contributions to the war effort, both at home and abroad. Shop our Museum Store for a wide selection of merchandise dedicated to the history and service of women at war. From books, to posters, to toys and apparel, there is something for everyone on your shopping list!
