The mobile museum also features a full-scale model of an M5A1 Stuart tank.

Because document-scanning equipment will be available in the trailer, visitors are encouraged to bring World War I and World War II-related images, letters, and documents to be scanned, preserved, and made publicly accessible in the Library of Virginia’s archives.
