National Vietnam War Museum
Backstory and Context
The museum features an indoor and an outdoor exhibit. The outdoor exhibit consists of
four gardens and a walking trail, as well as a 300-foot replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington. The wall is updated annually to make sure it stays as accurate as
possible. Visitors can also view a Vietnam-era helicopter mounted 20 feet in the air.
The indoor exhibits consist of the Visitor's Center, the Southern Airways Exhibit, and the Hootch Exhibit. The Visitor's Center offers a small gallery of artifacts and rotating exhibits within a trailer that was previously-located at George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. The Southern Airways Company exhibit tells the history of Camp Wolters, a flight training facility in Texas. The final indoor exhibit, the Hootch exhibit, shows some of the different living conditions for soldiers in Vietnam.
