World War 1 Commemorative Exhibit from Tours, France


Apr 3, 2018 to May 30, 2018
07:30 AM until 06:00 PM


Minneapolis and representatives from Tours, France, a Minneapolis Sister City, are proud to present “The Americans in Tours: 1917-1919.” Thousands of Americans, including Minnesotans, were stationed in Tours, France, and the exhibit features historical photographs and documents marking the arrival of the Americans in Tours, as well as their lives and work. The exhibit will be on display April 3 through May 30, at the Hennepin Gallery in the lower level of the Hennepin County Government Center.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the “Great War,” this special exhibit recalls a unique time in history when U.S. service members served in the Services of Supply (SOS) and the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF). Tours, France, served as headquarters for the SOS. The efforts of Americans in Tours were critical for the success of U.S. soldiers on the battlefield and also laid the groundwork for a lasting connection between the U.S. and France – one that lives today through the Sister City relationship.  The Minneapolis Sister Cities program is managed by Meet Minneapolis.

Exhibit Details:

  • The exhibit is open to the public and runs April 3 – May 30
  • Hennepin Gallery in the lower level of the Hennepin County Government Center
  • Exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the A-level
