A Middlesex County Museum Exhibition

This one of a kind exhibit features authentic WWI artifacts, including many pieces loaned by County residents. If you loaned an artifact, be sure to stop in and see your family's WWI story.

Admission to the exhibit and the grand opening celebration are free. No registration is required.

"This exhibit is a great tribute to New Jersey's role in WWI, on the battlefront and the home front," said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the Business Development and Education Committee. "I especially thank all our residents who loaned personal mementos, family heirlooms and other artifacts. Your contributions have helped Middlesex County bring history to life."

"The exhibit marks the centennial of WWI," said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios said. "I hope many people will attend the opening of the exhibit or visit during its run. Our nation has come a long way in the century since World War I, and we must not forget the lessons we've learned from that period."

The exhibit will be open to the public 1 to 4 PM on Tuesdays through Fridays, and Sundays (except holidays) and runs until Dec. 30, 2018.
