In honor of Memorial Day, all visitors will receive free admission to the Museum & Library—including free access to our new exhibit and hourly tours by PMML staff—and are invited to take part in any or all of the following FREE activities:
• At 10:30 a.m., genealogist Jennifer Holik will discuss her work and offer advice for those interested in tracing their lineage as it relates to the military.
• At noon, Museum & Library staff, interns, and volunteers will participate in the city of Chicago Memorial Day Parade (look for us on the "Operation Iraqi Freedom" float).
• At 1 p.m., join us for a big-screen showing of "Tears of the Sun" the fourth film in May's Navy SEAL-themed Saturday Matinee Series
• Throughout the day, veterans and those who have actively supported the military are encouraged to share their stories of service with the Museum & Library’s Holt Oral History Program, which seeks to preserve the history and heritage of American citizen soldiers through firsthand accounts of their experiences.
