For more than five decades, Kenneth W. Rendell was on a mission. Find out about his mission—a once-private Museum of World War II, which is now open to everyone—in this documentary narrated by legendary comedian, actor and writer Dan Aykroyd.

From the end of World War I and the rise of Nazism to the start of World War II and the fight in Europe and the Pacific, Rendell’s display of more than 6,000 World War II artifacts and documents has been called the “greatest in the world” by famed historian Stephen E. Ambrose. Numerous pieces have even been loaned for exhibitions to other collections, from California to Berlin, and the Holocaust Museum to London’s Imperial War Museum.

Explore the exhibits as the more than 50 interviews with veterans and survivors of the war help describe the meaning of the items.
