Nov 11 10:30 am
Pause the clock for a few hours to honor those who served during the Great War.
Join us as we commemorate the centennial of “the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month,” when the Allies of World War I signed an agreement with Germany to ended hostilities on the Western Front. In honor of this milestone anniversary, the Museum will offer open-house activities that are free to the public, including WWI aircraft demonstrations (weather dependent) and screenings of the Howard Hughes iconic 1930 film “Hell’s Angels.”
