Special weekend, Veterans Day hours for Ernie Pyle Museum

TERRE HAUTE — The Ernie Pyle World War II Museum in Dana will be open special hours on Veterans Day and the weekend before.

Museum hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday and Veterans Day.

Admission to the museum is $3.50 for adults; $3 for adults age 55 and older; and $2 for children ages 4-12. Children 3 and under are admitted free. Veterans will be admitted free on Veterans Day.

The museum’s official tourist season ends after Veterans Day, and the museum will reopen in the spring. However, the Friends of Ernie Pyle, a nonprofit organization that owns and operates the museum, will give private tours to individuals or groups during winter months. To request a tour, contact Friends President Cynthia Myers at 765-665-3084, or call the museum at 765-665-3633.

The museum is located on Indiana 71, one mile north of U.S. 36, in the Vemillion County community of Dana, Ernie Pyle’s hometown.

It consists of Pyle’s birth home and adjacent museum, which strive to preserve and advance the legacy of the famous World War II correspondent. Pyle was killed by a Japanese machine gunner in the South Pacific in the waning days of the war in 1945.
