World War II Victory Museum
The World War II Victory Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana, holds an extensive collection of uniforms, weapons, vehicles, and other artifacts from 11 different nations who fought in the Second World War.
Opened to the public in 2003, this unique selection of exhibits was actually purchased by collectible car auction guru and Indiana State Senator Dean Kruse using eBay, who bought the entire collection from its former owners in Belgium, who were forced to sell due to economic hardship. The World War II Victory Museum is open from 9am to 5pm every day, except on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, and offers discount admissions for seniors, children ages 7 to 12, non-WWII veterans and active duty military. WWII Veterans with ID and children under 7 are admitted free of charge, and group rates are available.
Whether you have a special interest in World War II, or have a general curiosity and appreciation for history, this museum is sure to teach you something new with its fascinating collection of artifacts unavailable anywhere else in the world.
