Fort Worth Museum of Science and History Celebrates Veterans Day
Shortly after the United States joined the First World War, 30,000 troops descended on Fort Worth to train and prepare. What became known as Camp Bowie lasted only a few years, yet it left a permanent mark on our city. During the lecture, which starts at 7:00 PM, guests will discover what went on in Camp Bowie’s eastern section – the land that would go on to become the Cultural District the Museum sits in today.
Guests can dive deeper into the fascinating history of Camp Bowie at a VIP reception preceding the lecture at 5:45 PM. The paid reception includes complimentary refreshments and an opportunity to chat with Tyler Alberts and Trace Chinworth.
The Celebrity Lecture is free, but registration is required. The VIP reception is $10 for non-members or $5 for members. Visit here to learn more, register for the lecture or buy reception tickets.
The Museum was established in 1941, is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. Anchored by its rich collections, the Museum is dedicated to lifelong learning. It engages guests through creative, vibrant programs and exhibits interpreting science and the history of Texas and the Southwest. For more information, visit www.fortworthmuseum.org.
