The all-new 25,000 square feet of museum exhibits at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene will open the end of July! The most recent innovations in technological components and interactives are guaranteed to engage audiences of all ages and learning styles. One new interactive feature tells the story of “Becoming Ike and Mamie.” The hands-on table allows visitors to explore Eisenhower’s pre-WWII career assignments. In addition to seeing rare artifacts and hearing new stories from the archives, visitors will come away with an understanding of how those experiences made Ike the perfect General to lead the Allies to victory in Europe in WWII. New mini-theaters offer visitors the opportunity to hear Ike’s words firsthand on a variety of events and issues from D-Day to world peace. Visitors will come to understand why the Eisenhower Administration was known for eight years of peace and prosperity. The layered-learning approach throughout the exhibits gives all visitors the opportunity to make a personal connection during their visit. Come see Ike again for the first time.
