Wings of Liberty Museum
The Wings of Liberty Museum will be a state of the art museum of the history of the 101st Airborne and Fort Campbell, KY. The museum will replace the Don F. Pratt Museum, currently located on Fort Campbell. The Don F. Pratt Museum is only able to display about 20% of the 101st Airborne Division's artifacts. The Wings of Liberty Museum is being constructed in a phased approach.
Backstory and Context
The Fort Campbell Historical Foundation is a not-for-profit organization providing support and assistance to the Fort Campbell Don F. Pratt Museum while working to build the new Wings of Liberty Military Museum and Fort Campbell Historical Complex. The new museum and historical complex will commemorate and preserve the legacy of all Fort Campbell Soldiers, past and present. An 18-acre site has been designated for the facility and visitors will have direct access without obtaining an installation pass. The new location is at the corner of State Route 41A and Tinytown Rd. in Clarksville, TN.
The complex will include aircraft used by the 101st Airborne throughout it's history, interactive displays, a gift shop, a memorial park and a banquet area. There are also several foundation initiatives, such as the “Pathway of Legends,” which will consist of engraved commemorative bricks.
