TRAVELING WORLD WAR I EXHIBITION KICKS OFF 75-CITY TOUR AT
INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND

A new, traveling exhibit dedicated to preserving the history of World War I will kick off its national, 75-city “Honoring Our History” tour at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.  The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday, July 2nd and Sunday, July 3rd from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Monday, July 4th from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

A custom 18-wheel “big rig” truck has been converted into a traveling, interactive art gallery that will include a variety of videos, audio recordings, military equipment and uniforms, tools, weapons and an authentic walk-through trench that simulates the war environment during World War I, all designed to preserve the artifacts, history and personal experiences of the War.

The exhibition was created by Waddell & Reed and Ivy Funds in conjunction with the National World War I Museum. 

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted and will benefit the National World War I Museum and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
