Rosie the Riveter Day

Help Rosie take over the museum March 19th 11–4. Dress like Rosie and get in FREE!
We’re celebrating Rosie the Riveter Day in recognition of the women of WWII who redefined what it was to be a woman in the workforce.
Some five million civilian women took over stereotypical “man’s work,” joining roughly 350,000 who served in the United States Armed Forces in an official capacity for the first time.
These women not only gave their sons, husbands, fathers, and brothers to the war effort, they gave their time, energy, and some even gave their lives. Decades later we are still inspired by their spirit and sacrifice, and on this special day we invite you out to the museum to check out our home front and women in uniform displays – and show us your Rosie!
