    WASHINGTON, DC—(Pinkston News Service)—Visitors coming to our nation’s capital will now have a new museum to add to their itineraries. On Monday June 13, the Victims of Communism Museum (www.vocmuseum.org) opens its doors to the public. It is described as “the first museum in the world dedicated to describing both the history of communism as well as its current global reach across Europe, Asia, and South America,” according to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, which operates the museum. Tragically, the lives of more than 100 million people have been lost because of communist regimes.

    “The Victims of Communism Museum is a place to remember the global crimes of communism, past and present. Through our efforts, we will strive to bring about a world free from the false hope of communism and to reinforce and promote the values of individual liberty, a free economy, the rule of law, democratic self-government, and human rights,” said Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation Chairman, Dr. Edwin J. Feulner, in a news release announcing the museum.

    There are three main galleries that take visitors on a historical journey. They will learn about the origins and rise of communism, from Marx and Engels’ inception of communist ideology to Lenin’s failed utopian promise, as well as profiles of the heroes that led the fight against communist oppression and the victims of its crimes. Films and state-of-the-art exhibits bring the gripping stories of victims and survivors to life.

    “The team of historians, architects, and artists who contributed have been world-class and our hope is that the museum will serve as a place where all victims of communism feel that their story is being heard,” added Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation President and CEO, Ambassador Andrew Bremberg.

    The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (www.victimsofcommunism.org) was authorized in 1993 by a unanimous Act of Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on December 17th of that year.

    The Victims of Communism Museum is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM and on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The museum is located at 900 15th Street NW in Washington, D.C. and is easily accessible from the McPherson Square Metro rail station.

    While in Washington, D.C., visitors can also visit the Victims of Communism Memorial statue, which was dedicated by President George W. Bush on June 12th, 2007.

    Admission to the Victims of Communism Museum is free and visitors must schedule a tour through the museum’s website: www.vocmuseum.org.
