In honor of the more than 2,400 U.S. personnel who died due to the attack Dec. 7, 1941, the Bradbury Science Museum will present an exhibit on Pearl Harbor.
In addition to a detailed chronology of events beginning at 6:18 a.m. on that historic morning, the display includes snippets of a serviceman’s diary, samples of newspaper pages of the time, and an extensive slideshow of more than 60 images taken before, during and after the attack.
Beginning this month, Museum visitors can buy a variety of souvenir items at a kiosk manned by members of the Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA). The items, which run from about $1 to $35, will initially include such things as ceramic and travel mugs, T-shirts, caps, flash drives, pens and sports bags. Many will carry the Museum’s logo.
