Evansville Wartime Museum is the place to visit for the surprising, interesting and world-changing story of one region’s involvement in winning WWII. The stories we tell come from home front workers and battlefront warriors — the people who were there. Evansville was a center of WWII production, from making P-47 fighter planes and LSTs to billions of bullets. These and hundreds of other products helped the Allies fight the war on land, on sea and in the air. Beyond wartime goods, men and women of the armed forces from this region shipped out to the world’s far-flung battle fronts. We share their stories, including a paratrooper’s D-Day landing, a pilot’s flights over the Hump, an infantryman’s march to retake Luzon and a wartime love story of a couple who met in Washington D.C., married and settled in Evansville. We are open, and we suggest checking our website for current day and hours of operation.
