Bailey Gallery for Rotating Exhibits

The Bailey Gallery for Rotating Exhibits is named in honor of Lieutenant Colonel Melvin “Mel” Bailey, a Vietnam Veteran and resident of Newport News. Bailey assisted with the building and overhaul of over 100 of the Museum’s displays and exhibits. In addition, he gave tours to almost every school group that visited the museum for over a decade and advocated for the Museum before City Council. The current exhibit looks at the Vietnam War in 1968-1969 focusing on the war as experienced by local veterans.
