Living History Day at G.I. Museum in Ocean Springs

It was Living History Day at the G.I. Museum in Ocean Springs where uniformed volunteers kept the memory of World War II alive.

The G.I. Museum has archived more than 17,000 military artifacts and some of those were on display out front.

Reenactors educated guests on these pieces of history and even gave some rides with working vehicles.

Living History Day was held in memory of the end of World War II in Europe. G.I. Museum CEO Doug Mansfield said, “Well our reenactors are here and actually put a face on it. They are alive. They’re here to answer questions. You can see the uniforms. It’s very important we never forget our history, because in a lot of cases we have, and we need to remember that and what everybody had to do all down through the years in order for this country to remain the free nation that we are.”

The museum is open every first and third Sunday of the month.
