Mott's Military Museum - New Wing Announcement

Today, the official dedication and ribbon cutting event was held at Mott's Military Museum.  The wing was revealed as a sneak peak but will be re-opened to the public in May 2015.  The current target is the weekend before memorial day.

Warren Mott gave moving dedications and was the most gracious of hosts for this event.  The veterans, their families and contributors in attendance all had a great time in a place where their service is honored and the artifacts telling the stories of war time and the military are treated with respect and reverence.

If you have never been to Mott's Military Museum, it is one of the must see places in central Ohio.   Go there now to see the open exhibits, then return again in May 2015 to see the new wing.

This non-profit can always be helped by your donations, and memberships are also available if you choose to support the museum in that fashion.

We don't want to give too much of the new exhibit away, but here are 2 images.  The first one shows the Ohio Vietnam War Memorial wall.  The hand crafted wall displays names of Ohioans by county.

The second image shows visitors checking out one of the new displays.
