Store returned at Pacific War Museum


The National Museum of the Pacific War will celebrate the return of Museum Store Sunday at all three of its retail locations featuring 20% discounts, refreshments and a lineup of special activities such as book signings, artifact displays and music from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1.

A variety of special events will take place in the museum’s main gift shop at the Bush Gallery during the annual, nationally-celebrated Museum Store Sunday.

The schedule begins at 10 a.m. with a meet and greet/book signing with Fred Harvey, World War II veteran/Iwo Jima survivor and author of “Hell Yes, I’d Do it All Again.”

James D. Hornfischer, naval historian and award-winning author of “The Fleet at Flood Tide,” “Neptune’s Inferno,” “Ship of Ghosts” and “The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors,” will be on hand in the afternoon to sign books and talk with shoppers.

Also scheduled are “Women in WWII” songs and dialogue with Sheri Hunt and Janette Dillard, a trunk show of essential WWII GI gear, hands-on artifacts, a photo booth and more.

Guests can enter into two drawings for the chance to win a gift basket that includes a museum membership and premium items from the gift shop.

The shopping day takes place at the three retail shops within the National Museum of the Pacific War complex in Fredericksburg.
