Ration Stamps & Bombers – WWII at Home Exhibit at the Plymouth Historical Museum

January 18 – June 17, 2012

The new exhibit at the Plymouth Historical Museum, “Ration Stamps & Bombers: WWII at Home,”  showcases how the lives of people in Plymouth and the Detroit area were affected by World War II. The enlightening exhibit features a collection of stories and items that pertain to several Plymouth residents who offered their services during the war, and details the contributions and sacrifices that they made for Plymouth and the country. The exhibit highlights items from the Museum’s World War II collection, and presents unique items that are on loan from other institutions, including items from the Michigan Military Museum and the Yankee Air Museum.

One item on display is a Norden bombsight on loan to the Museum from Burroughs. The bombsights were mechanical computers that calibrated the speed and altitude of the airplane bombers to ensure that the bombardiers more accurately hit their targets. The bombsites were manufactured by the Burroughs Corporation at its facility in Plymouth. The displays of ration stamps, uniforms, and war bond posters offer a historical view of how the community of Plymouth rallied to support the war effort. The exhibit will be on display at the Museum through Sunday, June 17, 2012. Admission is still only $5 for adults, $2 for children, and free for members. Hours are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
