Open House August 17 and 18, 2013:
Family-Friendly Event To Support Future Museum
The Americans in Wartime Museum will hold its annual Open House at “The Tank Farm” in Nokesville, Virginia, on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18, 2013. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The Open House is a preview of our permanent Museum, which will be built in Prince William County, Virginia. To help us make our world-class Museum a reality, we are suggesting a minimum $10 per adult donation for those who wish to attend this year’s Open House. The donation is voluntary but will help us advance the Museum and its mission to honor the men and women who have served America during wartime from World War I to the present.
If you choose to register and pay the suggested donation online, stop by our Membership Tent when you arrive at the Open House. We’ll give you a bracelet and other items indicating your support for the event and the Museum.
The Open House will include a range of exciting and engaging activities for the entire family:
- An amazing array of vintage armored vehicles
- Demonstrations by the U.S. Marine Corps Historical Company
- Displays and demonstrations by living history units
- Drawings for a chance to ride in one of our armored vehicles
- Veterans’ Roundtable
- Kids’ scavenger hunt
- Museum information and merchandise
- Food and drink for purchase
