The National Military History Center celebrates the contributions of the American military through the service and sacrifice of all individuals involved from the Revolutionary War through the Cold War. Exhibits detail the events of Pearl Harbor, the Women’s Service Corps, and the War in the Pacific. The Pearl Harbor exhibit features artifacts and education materials including photos of the attack and copy of President Roosevelt’s speech to Congress on December 8. Visitors can see how soldiers survived in their day-to-day lives with displays about medical practices and combat rations, and in-depth stories about maintaining relationships during war. Located in a 200,000-square-foot facility that also houses the Automotive and Carriage Museum, admission includes access to both museums. The automotive museum boasts professionally-restored carriages, movie cars, custom cars, monster trucks, motorcycles, a local racing gallery, and more.
