Virtual Tour Coming Soon!!
We are pleased to announce that through your donations FAWMA has been able to fund a virtual tour of the museum. This is especially meaningful since we know that many of you love the museum but are unable to travel to see it in person.
Right after the new year, the staff of the Army Women’s Museum worked with a contractor and a few volunteers to film a 360 degree virtual tour of the museum. Seen here is a member of the tour production company directing three soldiers for a shot in the museum’s “21st Century Army” gallery. Once complete, we will be providing a link for you to check out the tour and the special items that will be featured from the Museum’s collection that are not included in the current exhibits!
We’re so happy to have two new Soldiers join our staff at the museum, Sgt Shara Mintz and Spec. Jongchan Lee. We give a big thanks to the Quartermaster School’s 23rd Quartermaster Brigade for helping support the museum. Besides greeting visitors and answering the phone, they are instrumental in keeping the museum operations going, to include working on Saturdays for us. Come on by and say hello! It is always good to have a uniformed presence in our outstanding ARMY museum!
On 30 August, over 530 AIT trainees from 16th Ordnance Battalion toured the museum. Rotating through in groups of 100, the soldiers received a brief orientation on Army women’s history before embarking on an exploration of the new exhibits. The newly-renovated galleries proved accommodating for such a large group and many soldiers had their curiosity piqued, asking numerous questions and voicing how much they enjoyed everything they experienced in the museum.Follow us at our social media sites!
