CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby is set to reopen a popular gallery that's been closed for renovations.

The World War Two Gallery will open next Tuesday, with new exhibits and new stories of Mississippi soldiers.

The gallery, along with the rest of the museum, was closed about two years ago for a $2 million renovation.

Last October, a grand re-opening was held for four of the five galleries.

"The World War Two Gallery will have its own separate dedication, but we're going to go ahead and let the public start coming in, starting the 28th," said Chad Daniels, museum director.

"We're absolutely elated that the entire museum is going to be available again, and we have a lot of little things we'll be adding over time and a lot of exhibits that will be rotating through."

The museum first opened in 2001.
