Featured exhibit for the show will be the complete Knight Collection of Pearl Harbor artifacts.

Preserving the history of the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941, the Knight Collection is one of the largest assortments of Pearl Harbor relics in private hands, exhibiting over forty individual documented artifacts directly related to the attack, including pieces of Japanese aircraft, parts from ships, and many personal items of survivors.

Newly acquired items include personal items belonging to Admiral Joel Bunkley, commander of the battleship USS California, as well as items from survivors of the USS Phoenix, USS West Virginia, and medical personnel of the hospital ship USS Solace at the time of the attack.

The Knight Collection is awe-inspiring as it presents, through actual battle-scarred items, the story of a date which will live in infamy.
