The museum is a private collection belonging to the "asbl" (non-profit association)and its members are taking care of the exhibition on a voluntary basis.When the exhibition started in the small 3 rooms, made available from the commune,an "asbl"got created.After the dedication ceremony and during the following years more items, donations of locals and veterans made the collection fill up the three rooms and the need of a larger showroom became obvious.
Personal items, material and uniforms donated by veterans of the 385th Bombardment Group as well as parts from the B-17 crash sites all over Luxembourg made the collection even more valuable.
Plans for new, larger showrooms were made and work began on the renovation and transformation of the building end of 2000. It is to be noted that the building,housing the museum is the old school building of Perlé, the building where the dead airmen got brought for identification purposes,after the crash.
