Museum Themes

The vision for The National Vietnam War Museum is to create an atmosphere of learning that will engage people of all ages, nationalities, and political points of view. Eight broad themes, relating to the era, will be interwoven throughout the museum and its exhibits, to engage and involve the visitor:

The Cold War The Home Front
The Nation & Culture of Vietnam Technology and the War
Vietnam War Chronology War's End and Aftermath
An Evolution in Ground, Sea and Air Warfare Fort Wolters

All of these themes, except Fort Wolters, are directly related to the reasons for the war, the conduct of the war, or the end result of the war. Fort Wolters was chosen as a theme because of the museum's location and the fact that virtually all the helicopter pilots who served in Vietnam began their training at this North Texas base.
