The General George Patton Museum of Leadership at Fort Knox is getting an overhaul.

Officials at the museum told The News-Enterprise that they are in the process of planning the new layout and gathering new materials to exhibit at the central Kentucky facility.

Consultant Edward Miller says the museum is basically getting started from scratch and is being put together around the concept of leadership instead of being built around tangible artifacts.

Although Patton's life will remain part of the story told by the museum, it will have exhibits on the jungles of Vietnam, Rome during World War II, and the trench warfare of World War I.

Museum director Chris Kolakowski said the thread that ties it all together is learning leadership through strategic decisions made during historical events.
