Coming to you every Thursday at 2 pm ET, Target for Today broadcasts via Facebook live and through the Museum’s Vimeo Channel on topics of important dates, names, themes, collection items, and more from the Eighth Air Force experience and World War II.

Learn more about the individual members of the Eighth Air Force as well as the Eighth Air Force as a whole and its importance in helping to end tyranny and bring freedom to Nazi-occupied Europe during the war and about how America worked together to help end World War II by using these History Kits.

The museum welcomes thousands of students from around the region every year; however, not every class can come in person. Now teachers can set up virtual tours for their classes and let the Education Department bring the history of the Eighth directly to them. To book contact

Let your students receive a hands on history experience with the Flying Footlocker program.

Individual footlockers contain the story, artifacts, newspaper clippings, and lesson plans for students to touch and learn from. These items are rented through the Education Department and will immerse your class in history.
