One of the exhibits in the American Heritage Museum

Hudson – The American Heritage Museum, located at 568 Main St., Hudson, will host the Tanks, Wings and Wheels weekend on Saturday, Aug. 15 and Sunday, Aug. 16.  Two other museums in the complex, the Historic Aviation Hangar, and Classic Automobile Barn, will also be open. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s most rare aircraft, extraordinary American classic automobiles, historic tanks, armored vehicles, military artifacts and much more.

There is over 100,000 square feet of space within the American Heritage Museum and Hangar combined. As such, there is plenty of room for people to explore these amazing grounds while adhering to social distance protocols. Face masks are required, and pre-event ticket purchases are encouraged. People will be led directionally through each museum within limited group size intervals.

The weekend is particularly important as the museum observes the initial announcement of Japan’s surrender that was made on Aug. 15, 1945 (V-J Day), bringing WWII to an end.
