World War II Museum Road to Berlin




The Road to Berlin exhibit is a dramatic presentation of the allied paths to defeat Nazi Germany. You will find it on the lower level of the Campaigns of Courage Building.

Armed with cameras and carrying our modern packs, we trudge across the fields of France engaging German soldiers and avoiding friendly and enemy bombers.

We are embedded in scenes that include the machinery of war against Western European landscapes.
































We pause to watch videos and view case displays presented in context.





















The D-Day invasion began 6 June 1944. By 1 July, almost a million men were in France.


You get a sense of the harshness and courage during the cold winter of the Battle of the Bulge, which took place in December, 1944. Here, about 75,000 Americans lost their lives. German casualities were about 100,000.





















Amidst the devastation, there is a touch of humor.






The destruction of German cities is unimaginable, but we get a glimpse from enlarged photos.



















On May 8, 1945 (VE Day; Victory in Europe) the European war ended.

Like the war itself, the Museum is on a grand scale.
