About The Event

This interactive multimedia exhibit will commemorate the centennial of US entry into World War I and focus on North Carolina’s role in the War to End All Wars on the western front in France and Belgium. Visitors will experience a re-created trench warfare environment to discover what life was like for Tar Heel soldiers.

The 6,500-square-foot exhibition will highlight approximately 500 artifacts, period photography, a trench diorama, historical film footage, educational interactive components, and video re-enactments that feature European and North Carolina soldiers and citizens to relate the stories of ordinary men and women from North Carolina who provided extraordinary service to their country 100 years ago.

On Saturday, April 8, 2017, a large event commemorating World War I and the exhibit will take place in downtown Raleigh. The day will begin with a wreath-laying ceremony at the World War I section of the North Carolina Veterans Memorial on the State Capitol grounds. Afterward, a ribbon-cutting will officially open North Carolina and World War I at the N.C. Museum of History. The opening will be followed by presentations and activities. More details will be posted as they develop.

North Carolina and World War I is part of a statewide initiative by the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Many other World War I programs will be taking place in 2017 and 2018.
