See The Higgins Boat before it sets sail on July 27th
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy, known as D-Day, the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) Museum has installed a restored Higgins Boat on the front lawn of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This vessel's design was instrumental in defeating the Axis powers during World War II thanks to its ability to land troops in shallow water and on sandy beaches.
The exhibit is open for self-guided tours during NIHF museum hours of 10 AM to 5 PM, Monday – Friday and 11 AM to 3 PM on Saturdays. The exhibit and museum are closed Sundays. The exhibit runs through July 27th.
