WMC Educational Programs & Resources
The War Memorial Center provides a variety of internal and outreach programs that offer unique opportunities for students and Wisconsin residents to learn about patriotism, history, and the accomplishments of our veterans. The WMC is Wisconsin’s most visible memorial to all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Services, and is committed to furthering a single, solemn mission: “To Honor the Dead by Serving the Living.”
Take a Tour!
The War Memorial Center is the perfect destination for schools and organizations to learn about the sacrifices of Wisconsin’s Veterans. We offer self-guided tours, or, for groups of 10 or more, we provide a WMC guide to lead you through the facilities.
Plan a Program!
We offer standards-based educational opportunities for your students, planned with you around your unit of study and curriculum. We also invite school groups to utilize our venue as a site for appropriately themed programs and performances. Please e-mail our education coordinator to plan a program that fits your requirements.
Check Our Program Calendar!
Our online calendar details upcoming education events. If you are a teacher or a school administrator, the WMC offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for students to eat their bag lunches.
If you’re a Veteran looking for access to support and other resources, we’ve put together a fairly comprehensive list of local and national Web sites to help you find answers and connections within the Veterans community.
Veterans Story Project
Starting in 2014, The Veterans Story Project recorded several days of interviews with Wisconsin Veterans for a Milwaukee Public Television program set to air in November 2015. They are gathered together in this special section.
