The World War I & Berks project is a year-long commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of World War I that examines Berks County’s contributions to the Great War and the effects the war had on our local community. The World War I & Berks exhibit, located in the Berks History Center’s Palmer Gallery, tells how Reading and Berks County responded to the nation’s call to arms through a remarkable eagerness to serve and unwavering patriotism.
The exhibit began with the Gallery Opening Reception on November 10, 2017 and ends with a special program on the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day in November 2018. The WWI & Berks exhibit is open to the general public during regular museum hours. Visit Tuesday – Friday, 10AM-3PM, and Saturday 9AM-3PM. Admission is $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, $4.00 for children, and free to BHC members.
