As the nation mourns the passing of former President George H.W. Bush and tributes are being shared about his life of public service, we thought it fitting to share images from the gallery named in his honor at the National Museum of the Pacific War and the ribbon cutting ceremony from 2009.
Located in Fredericksburg, Texas, the National Museum of the Pacific War is an immersive experience for visitors. On December 7, 2009, sixty-eight years after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Museum hosted the Grand Re-Opening of the newly expanded George H.W. Bush Gallery. The ceremony was attended by survivors of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, drawing a crowd of over 5,000 people. The late former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara, along with Texas Governor Rick Perry, were on hand that day to cut the ribbon.
Exhibit Concepts was honored to fabricate the exhibits for the National Museum of the Pacific War, one of the largest projects we’ve undertaken as a company. Our team was privileged to be in attendance that day for the ribbon cutting, honoring the late former president. Exhibit Concepts has continued to work with the National Museum of the Pacific War to renovate and update portions of the museum, including updates to the George H.W. Bush Gallery and Theater.
