My husband and I loved our first visit to the Knights of Columbus Museum. We were anxious to see the WWI Exhibit. We are quite impressed! Through displays and artifacts, the reasons for the war were made clear and America's late entry into the war was explained. In school, WWI was always the least mentioned part of history. The wonderful collection of military headgear and uniforms, medals, and personal memorabilia is remarkable, explaining what I didn't learn in school. We viewed the permanent collection as well, and were equally impressed! The history of the Knights is amazing. Their philanthropy and impact in the world is just phenomenal! I recommend comfortable walking shoes, especially if you're apt to linger and read every bit of information which I like to do! Definitely check out the museum store. There are many reasonably priced items.
For us, visiting the museum is not a 'One and Done'. There are upcoming lectures and exhibits, enticing us to visit again! FYI: Allow a MINIMUM of two hours for your visit.
