The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park, part of the nonprofit Robert R. McCormick Foundation, promotes public learning about America’s military heritage and affairs through the history of the Big Red One — the famed First Infantry Division of the U.S. Army. The museum’s main exhibit hall transports visitors to the trenches of World War I, the beaches of World War II and the jungles of Vietnam. Outside, tanks are displayed from every era, along with personnel carriers and artillery. The Robert R. McCormick Research Center, open to the public, houses the museum’s library, archival and photo collections.
