Term Goals of the
History Center Foundation
The World War II
History Center Foundation was established for the purpose of building
and operating a regional-level museum and research library dedicated to
World War II. At this time, the World War II History Center,
located in El Dorado, Kansas offers a wide range of services and
attractions both at its location and through its website.
However, the potential for this organization will not be fully realized
until it has built its own full-scale, permanent facility on at least
40 acres of land.
Reenactments and Tours
One of our most unique
will be our full-scale European Theater battlefield, complete with
bunkers, trenches, a village, and other details unique to World War
II. Regular reenactments will be held on the battlefield, and
be given providing a first-person perspective of what soldiers faced
during the war.
Below is a collection of computer
renderings of what the battlefield will look like. Thanks goes to
Erik Runge for working up the renderings.
The restoration area will show the process
of restoring a vehicle to its original condition. One of the
about World War II is the number of types of military vehicles that
countries fielded. What better way to learn about these vehicles
see them moving around under their own power?
ever wanted the opportunity
to ride in a jeep, a halftrack, or even a tank? Visitors will get
chance, and they will even ride over our own battlefield to get another
perspective of what soldiers who fought from vehicles experienced.
