D-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM'S WORLD WAR II WEEKEND




(Hit your browser's refresh button to read the latest news.)

ATTENTION: THE MUSEUM WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY, JUNE 5 AND MONDAY, JUNE 9

The Museum Office, only, will be open for World War II Weekend Ticket Sales on Thursday, June 5th, Set-Up Day.  The Museum will also be closed on Clean-Up Day, Monday, June 9.  Your cooperation will be appreciated.

HEADS UP FOR ALL HOTEL HOSPITALITY HOPEFULS

If your World War II Weekend battle plan includes a stay at a local hostelry, you would be wise to reserve your accommodations now.  There is another large, public event taking place in Reading on "our" weekend and in all likelihood area hotel rooms will sell out well before the event.  A good place to start is our MAAM Recommended Hotels Page.  If you dither and end up at the Bates Motel, or out on the street, don't say we didn't warn you!

2014 WWII WEEKEND SPECIAL GUESTS ROSTER POSTED

The highlight of every World War II Weekend is our roster of Special Guest WWII Veterans. As they do each year, many of these veterans will speak at our various show speaker venues, relating their first hand experiences during the war. This is real "living history", told by the men and women who lived it.  We  have thirty-one guests currently scheduled to attend, and hope to be adding more as the months leading up to D-Day, 2014 pass.  Click on the Special Guests bomb link, and remember to refresh your browser to see the latest additions.
