The purpose of The World War II Memorial Museum is to honor and celebrate the people of the “greatest generation” by making their contributions and sacrifices to World War II uniquely alive and real for future generations to fully understand and appreciate. There are three main missions of The Museum: Creating and maintaining The World War II Memorial Museum, The WWII Playwriting Competition, and The School Children's WWII Educational Program. The Museum is dedicated to honoring and and celebrating the contributions of a generation that served both on the Homefront
and the War front. And to teaching younger generations about their efforts.
