29 th Oct 2020
The ‘Citizen Soldier’ is the focus of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, and it’s an endeavor that’s as timely as it is important. The library was founded by Colonel Jennifer N. Pritzker with a collection of military books that explored the concept of the Citizen Soldier in America. Since then, the list of pertinent materials has grown to include artifacts and items that delve into all viewpoints of the past, present, and future of the military. Explore WWI and WWII posters, American Revolutionary War Soldier’s notebooks, rare flags, and other valuable pieces that give a unique insight into the mind of a soldier.
To make the most of your visit, take advantage of the free 11 a.m. daily tour to access information courtesy of one of the museum’s expert docents. Even if you’re not ready for an in-person visit, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library offers virtual tours online, and a wealth of information on the website that is like a mini-museum visit from the comfort of your home. The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is just $5.
