On June 5-6, come honor the 75th anniversary of D-Day and stop by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Alexandria, Virginia, headquarters during your lunch hour to get a special tour of the Higgins Boat currently on display. Tours will run 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET on both days.

Tours will be led by a World War II reenactor and National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) Museum staff.

NIHF, in partnership with the USPTO, has installed a restored Higgins Boat on the front lawn of the USPTO until July 27. There are only 20 original Higgins Boats currently on display in the entire world. Come see this critical part of history and walk along and inside the "boat that won the war."

The exhibit is wheelchair accessible. To learn more or request special accommodations, please contact Linda Hosler.
