Pop-Up First Division Museum at McCormick Day Celebration.

What is a Pop-Up Museum?
A temporary exhibit created by YOU!
It’s like a community show-and-tell, bringing together photographs, objects, and stories brought in by our community.

How do I participate?
The theme for this Pop-Up is “Your Military History”.
Bring a photograph or object related to your family’s military history and First Division Museum staff will be on hand to display your object untill 5pm. The museum will provide a space for you to display your contribution, a label for you to write the story of your artifact, and staff to guard objects throughout the display.

What can I bring?
From the Desert Storm trading cards you collected as a kid to your Grandfathers patch in Vietnam, military history has impacted some part of our lives. You did not have to serve in the military to participate. The only rules we have are no firearms, things that could go BOOM, or any types of edged weapons.
