latest museum news

On April 16, 2020, the U.S. Army announced it will postpone the Museum’s June 4, 2020 public opening.  Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, some of the exhibit gallery finishing work was suspended, impacting the project timeline.  The Museum will open when the conditions can ensure the health and safety of Museum visitors and staff, and the Museum is ready to begin daily operations.
