Exhibit Closing: North Carolina & World War I

Monday, May 27, 5 p.m.

This long-running exhibition has commemorated the centennial of US entry into “the war to end all wars.” Its focus on the western front in France and Belgium enabled the museum to tell part of the story of North Carolinians and Europeans who took part in the conflict with hundreds of artifacts and period photographs, a re-created trench environment, historical film footage, educational interactive components, and video reenactments.

Major supporters of the exhibit North Carolina & World War I are the NC Museum of History Foundation and MOHA, the Museum of History Associates.

Note: A simulated battlefield environment—including bright lights, flashing lights, and loud noises—in this exhibit may be disturbing to children or visitors with health concerns. In addition, some images may not be suitable for some visitors.
