The Americans in Wartime Museum is opening its collection of rare wartime vehicles to the public.
Allan Cors, the museum’s chairman, is opening up his private collection of military vehicles to the public this Saturday and Sunday, October 4-5. Unable to personally serve himself, he intends to honor all those who have by unveiling his private collection and donating all of them to the future Americans in Wartime Museum.
The Americans in Wartime Museum is dedicated to telling the remarkable stories of American men and women who have met the challenge and served our nation during wartime – in all branches of the military and on the home front, from World War I to present-day conflicts.
One of the more unique aspects of the AWM is the outdoor area, where entire plots of land are configured into mock battle grounds based on different wars. The museum’s chairman, Allan Cors, has one of the largest collections of military vehicles, which plays a prominent role in the museum’s outdoor features.
Museum visitors will have the opportunity to get inside various vehicles and see firsthand what it was like on the front lines. “It is not about glorifying war, it is really about the visitors having a sense of what these individuals actually experienced on an everyday basis.” These events attract in upwards of 5,000 people a day. Truly unique and engaging, visitors to the Museum will be fully immersed in the experiences of Americans in wartime.

Family-friendly event with vehicle and tactical demonstrations, living history units,
