Day in the Life: Basic Training - Jan. 2024

Sunday, Jan. 14 | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Auditorium Lobby

Update: This event has been canceled due to anticipated winter weather, and will not be rescheduled.


Instead, join us next month for February's Day in the Life!


Join the Living History Volunteers Corps as they teach guests the lessons that soldiers and civilians of the Great War needed to know while going about their duties and daily lives. From drill to first aid to cooking with what the army gave you, this basic training will help you win the war! Guests will have the opportunity to view and ask questions about non-accessioned WWI objects up close.
