New this year, Midway Village Museum will plan a digital version of its popular World War II Days military re-enactment with digital video presentations. The videos will be a great addition to online E-learning opportunities as well as visitors who want to have a World War II experience this year without leaving home.
Re-enactor units will produce short videos related to the impressions each depict during the military re-enactment. Digital visitors will experience through these videos various aspects of the war by viewing these 6- to 7-minute videos showcasing artifacts, military units, uniforms and interviews with re-enactors.
Pay-Per-View Rates: $5 per person $2 per student There is a processing fee applied to your purchase.
The entire video series will include approximately 20 videos complete with footage from previous World War II Days and new videos pre-recorded specificially for this digital experience.
Pay-Per-View YouTube Links The virtual video presentations will be available online on Friday, September 25, and are pay-per-view YouTube videos launched on a private-group Facebook page. If you are not a Facebook social media subscriber, the YouTube video links will be emailed to you directly upon receipt of payment. The videos will be "live" online beginning Friday, September 25 through October 25.
Receiving The Video Link A confirmation email will be sent to you with the email link for the private Facebook group. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org, following your recipient of the confirmation email, if you choose to have the YouTube video links sent via email to you instead of using the Facebook platform.
In early August, Midway Village Museum announced it will not present the annual World War II Days military re-enactment which was scheduled for the third weekend in September due to COVID-19 safety concerns.
The annual special event is known as the largest of its kind in the Midwest with typically more than 1,000 re-enactors portraying Axis and Allied forces as well as civilians during the 1940s.
The new digital experience is in the planning stages with additional announcements detailing topics and how to view the presentations available in early September.
