If you're a history buff, this exhibit will leave you stuffed, especially those authentic documents on the Japanese surrender. Over 300 objects will be on display, including films, photographs, paintings, posters, and music from that crucial era in American history. And even if history isn't normally your thing, fort and battleships are sure to appeal to the little kid in you.
