Visitors are flocking to see the exhibit, “World War I – The ‘Doughboy’ War” where they can journey through the state-of-the- art trench complete with lights and battle sounds. The bunker, triage area, and command headquarters help transport guests back to World War I as they experience what life was like for soldiers as they engaged in battle. Visitors especially enjoy seeing the authentic weapons and rare uniforms from the era.
The exhibit continues to be very popular with group tours, school groups, and visitors from around the country and is part of the regular admission ticket for both the Woodrow Wilson Museum, as well as the President’s Birthplace.
