Yankee Air Museum – Grand Opening for Women Answer the Call Exhibit Museum to also Honor Veterans on November 11th
After 18 months of development and construction, the Women Answer the Call exhibit officially opens to the public on Saturday, November 11th. The exhibit celebrates the history of what happened at Willow Run during World War II when women left their homes to work in factories supporting the war effort. Visitors will get a glimpse of local Rosie the Riveters that went to work in the Ford Willow Run Bomber Plant in Ypsilanti. Guests will learn about the many roles women played in the war, both in industry and military, see fascinating artifacts from local families, and partake in a hands-on riveting demonstration. The Grand Opening will also include Yankee Air Museum’s Tribute Rosies and Original Rosies who worked at the Bomber Plant and other factories in Detroit during the war.
November 11th is also Veterans Day. The Yankee Air Museum will honor all veterans with free admission for them and their families. In conjunction with the opening of the Answer the Call exhibit, the Museum will also give a Rosie the Riveter pin to the first 200 visitors that day. Museum hours are 10am until 4pm that day and online tickets can be purchased at https://yankeeairmuseum.org/tickets-hours/.
