    National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

    As you leave the Early Years Gallery, you’ll soon be fully immersed in the history of the U.S. in World War Two. The hallway leading to the Air Power Gallery displays the story of the Holocaust. The exhibit shows first-hand accounts of people – including U.S. airmen – who experienced some aspect of this dark moment in history. The museum’s gallery dedicated to the Second World War points out significant moments in air power history from 1941 to 1945 - beginning with the bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Stories of the Bataan Death March, Doolittle Raid, Tuskegee Airmen and the struggle between the Allied and Axis powers are told through dioramas, videos, artifacts and photographs. You’ll also see aircraft from other countries to give you an idea of what threats U.S. airmen faced in the air. At the end of the gallery, be sure to notice the B-29 Bockscar and a Fat Man atomic bomb - the plane and type of weapon credited with ending World War Two. This ushered in the “Atomic Age” and forever changed the role of air power in the defense of our country.
