Join the American Memorial Park in celebrating Women’s History Month. The park will be hosting several events highlighting extraordinary women and their World War II stories.
Everyone is invited to explore the museum and the three temporary learning centers. Each center has activities for all to enjoy including paper crane folding at the Sadako center, learning about Rosie the Riveter in the Rosie center and folding your own Canary plane at the Amelia Earhart center.
On March 28, youth ages 5-10 are invited to participate in the Icons of World War II: Women in History program from 9am to 2pm at the Visitor Center.
