Current Special Exhibit

Dallas on the Home Front

October 15, 2015 – June 2016

In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II, this exhibit will examine the everyday lives of women and men on the home front.  Artifacts, stories, photographs and letters will illuminate the process of converting a domestic economy to war production where scrap drives, rationing and war bond sales became a reality for the Dallas community. Educational programming for school groups will be integrated into this exhibit. As an added bonus, visitors can recreate one of the most iconic images in American History and take a photo at Old Red’s very own Rosie the Riveter Selfie Station!
