Why War: The Causes of Conflict
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Why War: The Causes of Conflict is the newest exhibition at Paul G. Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection on Paine Field in Everett, Washington. Why War is a highly interactive media rich exhibit that explores the roots of military confrontations throughout our nation’s history. Dynamic large-scale touchscreens, engaging infographics, and rare historical artifacts examine conflict through the lenses of inciting factors, key figures, technology, and pop culture to demonstrate the common causes of war. Why War’s engaging interactives let families, community groups, and school classes choose how they want to explore this complex topic.

Wars are not random events; recurring risk factors combine to spark conflict. By exploring the nature of war and the introduction of nuclear weaponry, we ask the question - are we safer now than ever before? These and many other complex questions are answered inside of this informative exhibit. Some of the incredible experiences waiting for you within the exhibit include the a massive interactive wall with in-depth information on every American conflict, replicas of two atomic bombs, a war room, and much more.

Don't forget to enter for your chance to win a ride in FHC's M3A1 Personnel Carrier halftrack vehicle! Twelve winners will be selected. Must be present at time of drawing to win. One ticket per guest will be distributed at the FHC front desk.

That's not all...FHC will be unveiling two new vehicles at the opening! Any guesses on what they are?

Leading up to the opening FHC is proud to present a lecture by expert Jim Walther on March 1st and a special book signing by Dr. Greg Cashman on March 2nd. Guests who attend both of these events will receive free entry into Why War on March 4th.

Parking available in the FHC parking lot.

Doors open on Saturday, March 4th at 9AM for Volunteers and Members, 10AM to the general public.
