The weekend of October 11th and 12th will feature history throughout the ages in one afternoon at the Museum of American Armor at Nassau County’s Old Bethpage Village Restoration when living historians present uniforms, weapons and tactics that include Roman gladiators, Revolutionary War minutemen, WW I doughboys, a world class display of WW II armor and Vietnam War GIs.
The military heritage encampment is an extraordinary gathering of world history presented in one venue during one weekend when visitors can get an up close and personal look at the forces that have shaped our world. Interactive displays, rumbling tanks and knowledgeable living historians create a powerful family experience.

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano noted, “Endorsed by the Long Island Social Studies Council and applauded by the History Channel, Military Timeline Weekend has become a powerful history lesson for students who seek to better appreciate the heroes in their own families as well as the world we live in today. This event has become a compelling destination for families throughout the tri-state area and I would hope people make the time to come and see history literally take the field at the Museum of American Armor at Old Bethpage Village Restoration.”

Gates are open between 10 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Adult admission is $10, with discounts for veterans and seniors, and $5 for children.
The Museum of American Armor is part of the Military Heritage Coalition that includes the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport, the Cradle of Aviation and the Collings Foundation.
