Pritzker Military Museum & Library Open House

The Pritzker Military Museum & Library invites you to join us on Sunday, March 13th from 2-4pm for a museum open house with free admission. Curious about who works here and what we do? Meet PMML staff and learn about our upcoming educational and public programs, chat with our curator and find out about our upcoming exhibit and learn how to conduct research using the PMML library and our extensive resources. You’ll also have one last opportunity to experience the Drawn to Combat: Bill Mauldin and the Art of War exhibit and meet illustration students from the Fine Arts program at Columbia College as they exhibit their own interpretation and inspiration of Mauldin’s work, showing that there’s more to military history than war and battle. You and your family will also have a chance to create your own Mauldin inspired piece, interact with a caricature artist, and enter a raffle to have the opportunity to win prizes!

  • 1st prize:

    • Four (4) tickets for a personal VIP tour of the International Spy Museum
