Be one of the first museum guests to see our highly anticipated exhibit, Secrets of WWII. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library has created a never-before- seen exhibit highlighting some of the lesser-known facts, or formerly Top Secret and recently declassified material, related to the largest war ever to be fought on the planet. The Secrets of WWII explores the fascinating elements and provides a compelling look at WWII, not for just its battles and the combatants, but digs deeper into the secrets of its guarded technologies, its unsung heroes, the popular culture of the time, the propaganda produced on all sides, the inventive methods of code making and code breaking, as well as shining a light on some of the controversies and the intrigue, much of which has not even been revealed until very recently. Topics include stories of the classified deception units, hero animals, the only dentist to be awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery, and why red lipstick was considered a necessity and how it helped with winning the War.

This luncheon will feature a virtual talk in addition to an audience question and answer session with historian Jeffrey A. Engel. Engel is founding director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University and Professor in the Clements Department of History.  A Senior Fellow of the Norwegian Nobel Institute and of the John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies, he graduated magna cum laude from Cornell University.  He additionally studied at St. Catherine's College, Oxford University, and received his M.A. and Ph.D. in American history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, before holding a John M. Olin Postdoctoral Fellow in International Security Studies at Yale University.

Copies of Engel’s book, When the World Seemed New: George H.W. Bush and the End of the Cold War, will be available for purchase.

Following the served lunch at 1:30PM, guests will have a chance to self-guide the Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum, Air Force One Pavilion, and our extraordinary special exhibition, Secrets of WWII. This all-inclusive offer is only $66.00 per person (tax and gratuity included). Reservations are required and must be made by Monday, April 4 at 8:00 a.m. Make your reservations early before we sell out. Casual attire is suggested.
