The Waddell and Reed traveling WWI museum is a wonderful collection of military artifacts, including uniforms, medals, weapons, medical supplies, flags and other items. There are video displays throughout the truck trailer, with an introductory video outside.

"Dubbed the “Honoring Our History” tour, the unique traveling museum offers a free, interactive and educational experience designed by the Museum. Funds raised at each stop will be divided equally between each local museum and the National World War I Museum.

"The traveling gallery features:

  • artifacts
  • videos
  • an authentic walk-through trench that simulates the war environment
  • audio tracks
  • headlines
  • historical descriptions



"It allows visitors the chance to experience the tight conditions of trench warfare, see the relatively primitive tools, weapons, equipment and uniforms, amid sounds and sights of war 100 years ago."
