In honor of Veterans Day, the National Museum of Funeral History (NMFH) is giving back to past and active military by offering free general admission to veterans and active military servicemen and women for an entire week.

Veterans Day celebrates all those who served in the military, whether in war or peace. The museum features several exhibits that pay tribute to those who have so bravely served and given their lives for our country, including the 9/11 and Fallen Heroes Tribute, Presidential Funerals, and Reflections on the Wall—a photography exhibit on the dedication of the Vietnam Memorial.

Explore all exhibits at the National Museum of Funeral History.
