Visiting the museum is a unique experience. In addition to being the most comprehensive collection of original World War II artifacts anywhere in the world, the exhibition- nearly 7,000 pieces- integrates the human, political and military stories. It is an intense experience made more so by the fact most artifacts are not behind or under glass. Most can be touched.
LOCATION of the museum is Route 9, Natick, MA, across from the Natick Mall, 15-20 minutes from downtown Boston, 5 minutes from the Mass. Turnpike directly west of Boston. The exact location will be sent with confirmation of your visit date and time.
ACOUSTIGUIDES are available to give background and commentary on more than 50 marked stops in the museum. If a visitor listens to all the audio, it is three and a half hours.
A MINIMUM DONATION of $25 is necessary to support the overhead necessary to have the museum open for visitors. Donations are tax deductible. Checks can be made payable to The Museum of World War II, a non-profit foundation. Veterans and Seniors can donate what they are able to.
Persons younger than 18 years old need to be accompanied by a parent. The museum is not entertainment, it is serious, and we welcome any young person with that attitude.
