Get an early start to summer with a weekend getaway for a Fredericksburg Memorial Day Weekend. Fredericksburg, Texas offers the perfect balance of both honoring those who have served our country and enjoying a relaxing retreat in wine country.
Spend a Meaningful Day at the National Museum of the Pacific War
What better way to honor those who have served our country than by learning the stories behind the eight million Americans who served in the war against Japan and the more than 100,000 who gave their lives? The National Museum of the Pacific War is the only organization in the country that focuses exclusively on the Pacific and Asiatic Theaters in World War II. Learn more about the struggles, sacrifices, and triumphs of the war heroes who served during this time, gaining a greater appreciation for freedom. A special Memorial Day program will be held at the museum on May 27th.
Memorial Day in Texas is also a great time to check out special exhibits that will be happening during Memorial Day. The Songs of the Patriot temporary exhibit offers a look into American wartime at home and abroad during World War II through the cover art and lyrics of popular sheet music from 1940 to 1945. Covering themes such as anti-war sentiments, rallying support for overseas troops, and the hopeful anticipation of loved ones returning safely home, this music gives a look into history from a unique vantage point. Adults and older children may also find the WWII Pacific Combat Program quite impactful. This experience allows you to experience the sights and sounds of a WWII beach landing through an exciting simulation.
