DEVENS — The public is invited to Fort Devens Museum’s Armed Forces Day open house on Saturday, May 17, featuring programs touching on the nation’s past to better understand the present and work toward an even better tomorrow.
Located on the third-floor at 94 Jackson Road, the museum opens its doors at 10 a.m. for visitors to view its many evolving displays and new exhibits. Programs take place at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m., and the museum remains open for viewing until 4 p.m.
Historian and journalist Alan Earls starts at 11 a.m. with a program intended, he writes, to “provide an anecdotal overview of some of the important Cold War research and development and production activities that put Massachusetts ‘on the front lines’ for future conflicts.”
