What a wonderful story, Frances. Thank you so much for sharing your experience in the Museum, as well as the stories and memories about your grandfather.

Gallagher & Associates was responsible for the exhibit design, and they are one of our clients. Here's a link to the project on their website — https://gallagherdesign.com/projects/the-national-world-war-ii-museum/

You'll see a number of other historical museums in their portfolio, and in addition, they are currently involved with the new National Medal of Honor Museum in South Carolina, working with world-famous Safdie Architects.

Best,
Marjanne

What a small world, Marjanne. I was so impressed by this one and will have to expand my list to one day visit all these other historical museums.

Hi! Nice to see you! I'm Frances Rivetti — lifestyle journalist, author, culture seeker
Welcome! I'm Frances. I'm a British/American freelance journalist and author based in the spectacular coastal region of Sonoma County, Northern California. Along with the best of Sonoma Wine Country and neighboring Napa, Marin and Mendocino Counties, I share lifestyle, culture and travel notes from my travels around the world. I've written two non-fiction books on the food and farming culture of southern Sonoma County and coastal West Marin: Fog Valley Crush and Fog Valley Winter. My first novel (also set in Northern California), Big Green Country, was published in 2019 and won Best Western Regional Fiction in the Independent Book Publishers Awards in 2020. My second novel, The House on Liberty Street is a family drama set in Petaluma, Sonoma County and will release in December 2022. Please get in touch if you have any questions about my work or would like to commission me for an article.
