The Maine Military Museum has added a separate room for Japanese and Japan related exhibits from World War II.
The room is in the new section of the museum and items are currently being moved to and added to the exhibits.
The Richard A. Davis reading room in the new section of the museum has been completed.
The Maine Military Museum is expanding into the half of the building formerly occupied by the local VFW post.
In addition to adding exhibition space, expansion plans include a snack bar, a library, and a museum store.
We have digitized some stereo images from World War I and made them available as both regular images and simulated 3D images. Each of the images is accompanied by a full description of the scene or event.
In an excerpt of his video “God, Country and Family” Captain Richard “Moon” Mullen describes his capture and the torture to which he was subjected.
