To mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day on June 6, 2019, the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) Museum will be “landing” a restored Higgins Boat in Dulany Gardens — just outside of the Museum — at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.

The exhibit is part of the 2019 National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees exhibit and will be open to the public April 27 through July 27. Visitors are encouraged to climb aboard the iconic boat, take a picture and check in at the location on social media using #HigginsBoat.

Visitors can then go inside the NIHF Museum to learn more about Higgins and the rest of the 2019 Class of Inductees including Chieko Asakawa, inventor of the Home Page Reader, and the inventors of Stannous Fluoride Toothpaste, Joseph Muhler and William Nebergall!
