Officially known as ‘Awakening the Mind Museum: WW1 Remembered’, this travelling exhibit was created and is operated by Keith A. Colley. Based in Texas, the museum began in 2015 and had a busy tour schedule until Covid grounded them. In 2019 they visited twenty three locations, sixteen of which were in Texas, but also in NY, MO, KS, MI and MA. Last fall they returned to exhibiting at Frisco, TX.
