A City Worth Fighting For: Cleveland’s Role in WWI Opens

A City Worth Fighting For: Cleveland’s Role in WWI is a new exhibition opening on April 7, 2018.

This exhibition uses artifacts from the museum’s rarely seen military collection to tell the story of a city at war. It showcases the many ways, both civic and industrial, that Cleveland supported the war effort, and it shares the stories of men and women from Northeast Ohio that served in the trenches in France.

A City Worth Fighting For also illuminates the ways that World War I changed Cleveland forever and helped to create the city we live in today.
