MUSEUM OF AMERICANS AT WAR

 
   
 

This has been a privately owned museum of Mr. Allan Coors located in Nokesville Va. It contains an outstanding collection of armored vehicles from around the world. The museum holds a special exhibition once every year or two. Next year the new Americans in Wartime Museum containing all this and much more is scheduled to open near Woodbridge VA. The new museum is opening for memberships and publishes a newsletter. It has a web site {short description of image}here. From this web page one can learn about many aspects of the coming museum. The museum's stated objectives are: Honor those who serve(d) at home and abroad, tell personnal stories of those who serve(d), recognize all branches of the United States military, cover World War I to present conflicts, display Operational vehicles and aircraft on site.

The first open house I attended was in 2003. You can see the photos from 2003 when the museum was Coors armor museum. Compare these with those fro m2016 -2019 to see how much the show has expanded and how much bteer are the conditions of the vehicles. The open house in summer 2006 was dedicated to the Marine Corps Battle on Iwo Jima and included a reenactment of a Marine assault on a pillbox, complete with use of tanks and a flamethrower, as can be seen in several of the photos below. But I have not learned how to create links from the html director to videos. And we have now added photos from the shows in 2008, 2009, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. In several years from now the new Americans in Wartime Museum containing all this will open near Woodbridge VA.

This links to the photos from the annual shows for which I took photos at the open house at the privately owned museum of Mr. Coors located in Nokesville Va. It contains an outstanding collection of armored vehicles from around the world. As the collection has expanded with vehicles and exhibits from manyforeign countries so also has the number of reenactors representing such countries expanded.
