The Vietnam War 1945-1975 Exhibit
Heinz History Center
ACRA has arranged a guided tour for our members of the Heinz History Center Exhibit , The Vietnam War: 1945-1975. The tour will take approximately 1 1/2 hours and there is considerable walking involved in the tour. Heinz History Center has a limited number of wheelchairs available at a first come first served access, if you require the use of one.
The Vietnam War: 1945-1975 exhibition takes visitors on a journey spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina, from the post-World War II advent of the Cold War to our prolonged exit in the mid-1970s. The exhibition showcases the key players and turning points of the complex war and explores how the conflict heavily impacted our nation’s trust in government, economics, popular culture, and identity.
The groundbreaking exhibit uses powerful photography, fascinating artifacts, and more than 20 audio/visual displays to tell the deeply personal stories of the men and women who were impacted by the war, from the home front to the front lines.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME EXHIBITS CONTAIN GRAPHIC CONTENT AND IMAGES OF WAR.
