The National WWII Museum will mark the 77th anniversary of D-Day and 21st birthday of the Museum on Sunday, June 6, 2021, highlighted by the on-campus Dr. Hal Baumgarten D-Day Commemoration Ceremony in US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center. The ceremony will be broadcast in Louisiana Memorial Pavilion and, for those who cannot attend in person, livestreamed on Vimeo and Facebook as well.

Following the ceremony, there will be a free live Victory Belles performance in US Freedom Pavilion at 12:30 p.m. From 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., there will also be scarf giveaways for veterans visiting the Museum during the morning courtesy of our Knit Your Bit initiative, with over 10,000 knitters and crocheters participating throughout all 50 states. And at the conclusion of the day, join us in BB’s Stage Door Canteen for a casual performance of wartime piano music! Tap along to favorites like “Sentimental Journey” and “I’ll Be Seeing You” and learn how these tunes coincided with significant events of the war.
