Support the Navy Museum’s Cold War Gallery Project

The National Museum of the United States Navy is adding 20,000 sq. feet of exhibit space to honor those who served in the Navy during the Cold War and educate future generations about how sea power helped America triumph over the Soviet Union. In June 2011, the ribbon was cut on a new Covert Submarine Operations exhibit, joining the Central Hall and Ready Room theater as completed portions of the Cold War Gallery. The Naval Historical Foundation seeks your support to make this project a reality. Please give your tax-deductible contribution today!
