After Hours: 'WW1 America' opens at MOHAI

World War 1 profoundly changed American life. Learn how in ‘WW1 America,’ a new exhibit at MOHAI.

SEATTLE — A new exhibit on World War 1 has opened at the Museum of History & Industry and runs through Feb. 10, 2019.

“WW1 America serves as the centerpiece of a six-month community examination of the war's 100-year anniversary, illustrating how the past can help us understand ourselves and our nation today to envision a strong future,” said Leonard Garfield, MOHAI's executive director.

The exhibit was developed by Minnesota History Center and its partners to show how profoundly the war changed American life. The rapid growth of industry, the rise of the women's movement, the battle over civil rights, anti-immigrant paranoia, the Spanish flu pandemic, and labor struggles that culminated in the Seattle General Strike of 1919 are all examined.

More information about MOHAI and the exhibit is at mohai.org or (206) 324-1126.
