Details:

In 1996, Francis Gary Powers, Jr. and John C. Welch founded the Cold War Museum to preserve Cold War history and honor Cold War Veterans. The museum is dedicated to education, preservation, and research on the global, ideological and political confrontations between East and West, from the end of World War II to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The museum?s aim is to maintain a historically accurate record of the people, places and events of the Cold War, and educate future generations about the fears, division and dangers it fostered. The museum co-sponsored a conference, "Interpreting the Physical Legacy of the Cold War" with the Cold War International History Project at the Smithsonian's Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on October 8 and 9, 2003. In addition, a mobile exhibit of historical artifacts associated with the U-2 Incident of May 1960 is currently traveling around the world.
