The National Vietnam War Museum
 Construction Update as of January 2021

“A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.” -Louis Kahn

Here’s where we are now:   The elevator is almost finished.  Electricity and water are in, bathrooms work, painting is done inside and out. The museum logo is installed on the front of the building and the front porch cover is complete. The parking construction has been coming along great and the front of the museum now is complete.  The art gallery is completed except for hanging the art and we are working on that. Two pieces of art are up :-).  The helicopter (OH-23) is in the building ready for viewing.  The quilt shadow box is nearing completion and it should be ready for display before March.  Display cases are in and parked where they belong and we’re waiting for a subcontractor to show up and set up all the displays.

We have heat and air conditioning, a replica of the Resolute desk is in the Oval office and there is a chair for you to sit in at the desk. We expect the front entrance to be prettier before March. 

Our direct mail fundraising campaign had over 4,000 engraved bricks to order for donors and we have completed the first wall to hold them. Each wall will hold 2,800 bricks. The parking lot plan was made and it won’t be built until the contractors quit tearing it up driving through the wet ground. And finally, funds are coming in at a much slower rate. We can use some more donations to speed up the process and open on time!
