Join us on Sunday, February 11 for the Georgia History Festival’s Super Museum Sunday!
Admission is FREE all day at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force and visitors will have the opportunity to meet and purchase books from two distinguished authors.
World War II author, Steve Snyder, will be available from Noon – 4 pm, signing copies of his award winning book “Shot Down.” The book follows the true story of Snyder’s father, Howard Snyder, a B-17 pilot in England during WWII and the day he was shot down over the French/Belgium border after a bombing mission on February 8, 1944. Snyder will be in the rotunda of the Museum.
Children will have the opportunity to meet and have a book signed by Atlanta-based British author and historian Annette Laing. Her series, The Snipesville Chronicles,
turns history into an adventure for a group of young time-travelers from a small town in Georgia. Laing will also be available, along with her books on Super Museum Sunday from Noon – 4 pm in the Museum’s gift shop.
Ben and Jerry’s will also be onsite with their ice cream truck selling ice cream.
Super Museum Sunday is a tradition where museums all over the state of Georgia open their doors for free admission. The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is offering free admission from 9 am – 5 pm. The annual event is sponsored by the Georgia Historical Society.
