The National Veterans Memorial and Museum will open to the public next month. But this one of a kind facility isn’t in the nation’s capital - it's in Ohio’s capital city.

The Akron Art museum has had quite a couple of months when it comes to financial gifts and memberships.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation awarded the museum $8 million, its largest gift to date, in September. That inspired the museum to offer free memberships to the community, according to CEO Mark Masuoka.  

“It really was a way that we were trying to respond, not only equally as generous, but in a way that would really open up the museum even further than what it was,” he said.
