Ticket Info:Admission is free A new traveling exhibit about The First Gulf War: The War to Free Kuwait, opens Friday, Nov. 4, at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. The Government of the State of Kuwait funded the exhibit to honor the 75,000 men and women, and their units, stationed in North Carolina, who served and sacrificed to liberate Kuwait. Admission is free, and the memorial exhibit will run through Jan. 15 at the museum before beginning its journey across the state.

The First Gulf War features eight informational panels, filled with photographs, recounting the conflict that began when dictator Saddam Hussein attacked Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990. The resulting conflict became known as the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991, when the United States led the most diverse coalition of nations in recent history in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm to oust Iraqi forces that had invaded Kuwait. The First Gulf War highlights Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, weapons of the Gulf War, and the liberation of Kuwait.
