Plan Your Visit

The Freedom Museum tells the courageous stories of American men and women who served on the battlefront and the homefront-the soldier on foreign soil, Rosie the Riveter, the children of wartime, and those who made the supreme sacrifice for their country. The Freedom Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, interprets the struggle to protect our nation’s freedom through the stories of ordinary Americans who became genuine heroes–documenting their valor, exploring their contributions to history, and evoking a renewed sense of American pride.

On entering the Freedom Museum complex, visitors experience history, becoming active participants in the drama and patriotic spirit that unfold in the Museum’s exhibits and programs. A visit to the Freedom Museum is evocative and interactive.
