    Minnesota Homefront, World War II is a traveling exhibit that explores the accomplishments, sacrifices, disappointments and challenges that have shaped the enduring legacy of Minnesota's Greatest Generation through their stories.

    In the exhibit visitors find out what it was like to "make do" with rationing, farm during a severe shortage, work on the Iron Range, develop inventions for the war, be trained as a translator at Fort Snelling and endure a starvation experiment for science and the war effort. The exhibit features audio interviews, songs of the period, and a "letter Stories" bin.

    Minnesota Homefront is on temporary loan from the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul and is traveling to venues throughout Minnesota. The Minnesota Historical Society traveling Exhibits Program has been made possible by the arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008.
