82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum


The museum is dedicated to telling the history of the 82d Airborne Division from 1917 to the present. Major General James M. Gavin began the concept of the museum in 1945, when the 82d Airborne Division received the honor of Occupation Duty in Berlin at the end of World War II. Inside the Division headquarters a trophy and news room held information about their war effort and the nation's victory.
