Fun Facts

With more than 100,000 objects and documents, the National World War I Museum and Memorial holds the most diverse collection of Great War items in the world.

More than 100,000 people witnessed the site dedication in 1921 and more than 150,000 spectators viewed the opening in 1926 featuring U.S. President Calvin Coolidge - the largest crowd a U.S. president had ever addressed at that point in time.

The Museum’s collection includes the largest remaining section of the Pantheon de la Guerre, formerly the largest painting in the world at 402 feet by 45 feet that originally featured 6,000 prominent Allied nations’ figures from World War I.
