WWI exhibit reception, tour at State Museum
A World War I Centennial Reception and Gallery Tour will be held April 23,
1 to 3 p.m., in the South Lobby of the New York State Museum, 222 Madison Ave., Albany.
Join Senior Historian and Curator Aaron Noble for a tour of the New York State Museum’s World War I Centennial exhibition, “A Spirit of Sacrifice: New York State in the First World War.” Learn about the artifacts and images on display, as well as behind the scenes stories about New York’s pivotal role in the American war effort.
Event includes a 1 p.m. reception with light refreshments in South Hall Lobby, followed by a 2 p.m. gallery tour.
The exhibition is organized into six areas covering New York’s participation in the war — which the U.S. joined 100 years ago this month — both at home and on the warfront, and features a life-size recreation of a trench on the Western Front.
