VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — In honor of Women’s History Month, the Military Aviation Museum celebrated National Rosie the Riveter Day.

Hundreds of people visited the museum to honor Rosie the Riveter for her efforts during World War II.

The museum offered learning sessions and activities to show families the tools Rosie used while working in factories.

Guests showed up in their red bandanas to show support for Rosie’s campaign that encouraged women to work.

People from Norfolk’s Slover Library even read books about Rosie to children every hour.

The museum’s director, Keegan Chetwynd, said the team tries their absolute best to make the activities engaging as possible.
