World War II Museum in The Szilagyi Center

Two of the life-size, life-like figures created by Jef Verswyvel.

This magnificent exhibit is now housed in two rooms of the Szilagyi Center (old Rowlesburg School). Jef Verswyvel, with help from Maggie Deweirdt, designed the settings for his many WW II figures in authentic military uniforms. This first class exhibit includes war memorabilia, medals, arms, photographs, war posters and much more. The lighting, settings, and ambiance are as good, or even better than other military museums.

Hours are Saturdays 11 AM - 5 PM, Sundays 1 PM - 5 PM, Special Occasions, or by appointment. Call Shirley at 304 329-1240 or Katie at 304 454-9232.
