D-Day Commemoration - 75th Anniversary

D-Day 75th Anniversary Exhibits & Events at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force will commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day with two separate days full of events, as well as a temporary augmented reality (AR) exhibit. The events will take place on Monday, May 13 and Thursday, June 6, 2019. 

On May 13th, events will include a paratrooper jump, D-Day films and the opening of the temporary AR exhibit which will remain open through the end of the year. The event on June 6th will include a flyover, wreath laying, living history re-enactors, WWII-era vehicles, collection displays and D-Day films.

The Air Force Museum Foundation will also open a roughly 3,500 square foot, fully interactive augmented reality (AR) experience focusing on the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions and their missions during D-Day. Through spectacular scientifically- and historically-validated 360° recreations, museum visitors will travel in time to understand the key moments of this decisive battle for the success of D-Day. The exhibit will be open from May 13 through the end of the year.
