    The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force will commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day with two separate days full of events, as well as a temporary augmented reality (AR) exhibit.

    The events will take place on Monday, May 13 and Thursday, June 6 2019. The event on May 13th will include a paratrooper jump, D-Day films and the opening of the temporary AR exhibit which will remain open through the end of the year. The event on June 6th will include a flyover, wreath laying, living history re-enactors, WWII-era vehicles, collection displays and D-Day films.

    In honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Air Force Museum Foundation will open a new, fully interactive augmented reality (AR) experience focusing on the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions and their missions during D-Day.

    This limited-time exhibit utilizes tablets running the innovative technology "HistoPad", designed by the French company Histovery. The HistoPad is an interactive tablet which immerses the visitor in the history of Sainte-Mère-Église, France, during the Occupation and the summer of 1944. Through spectacular scientifically- and historically-validated 360° recreations, museum visitors will travel in time to understand the key moments of this decisive battle for the success of D-Day.

    The roughly 3,500 square foot exhibit is designed around Allied unit insignia, the exhibit will feature twelve physical panels that guide visitors through the experience. The HistoPad allows the visitor to manipulate a series of 3D virtual relics, view unpublished photographs and extracts of exceptional archival films, interact with animated maps, and learn the incredible destinies of some of our nation’s D-Day heroes.

    Brought to you by the Air Force Museum Foundation, this exhibit will be open from May 13 through the end of the year. It will take approximately 40 minutes to tour the D-Day exhibit. Cost $5 per tablet.
