The Museum of 20th Century Warfare will have an open house Saturday at Fort Harrison State Park. The event starts at 10 a.m.

The museum will display artifacts and uniforms from all branches of the military from 1910 through Operation Desert Storm

Veterans and uniformed re-enactors will be available to answer questions.

Entrance to the museum is free, but admission to the park is $5 for Indiana residents and $7 for out-of-state residents.
