June 22: Free Commemorative Keychain to First 250 Visitors to the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial
To celebrate the 93rd anniversary of the start of the Inter-Allied Games, the National World War I Museum is including a free baseball keychain with the first 250 full paid admissions to the Museum on Friday, June 22, 2012. The keychain commemorates the Museum’s new exhibition, World War I All-Stars, which showcases the Inter-Allied Games of 1919.
Located in Exhibit Hall, World War I All-Stars: Sports & the Inter-Allied Games highlights the Olympics-type competition that was designed to strengthen the bonds of understanding among soldiers of the Allied nations after World War I ended. Visitors can view the Museum’s rare collection of wartime athletic gear as well as items on loan from various institutions across the United States, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., First Division Museum in Cantigny, Ill., the YMCA Archives in Minneapolis, Minn., Ohio State University, and many more.
The exhibition is included with admission to the Museum and free for members.
It is made possible through the generosity of Pioneer Services, Courtney S. Turner Trust and the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund.
