Mighty Eighth gets National Museum status

Posted on Wed, Mar 20, 2013 at 12:02 PM

The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum today announced the advancement of the museum to national status. The facility just off I-95 will be called the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.

Artist renderings for exhibit upgrades and future exhibits are on exhibit at the Museum at 175 Bourne Ave. in Pooler.

National Museum status means greater access to funding and expanded marketing opportunities. The "new" Mighty Eighth will join other National Museums in Georgia such as the National Prisoner of War Museum in Andersonville, and the National Infantry Museum and the National Civil War Naval Museum, both in Columbus.
