Kenneth Rendell didn't want his World War II museum to be for "entertainment." He only lets visitors come to his Natick museum by appointment and only after they have explained why they are interested in his collection.

It's hard to imagine how you couldn't find something interesting in Rendell's collection of over 6,000 artifacts. He has everything from Nazi uniforms to American bazookas to a Sherman tank. Radio Boston's Anthony Brooks visited Natick to find out why Rendell was so determined to amass such a trove of World War II materials and to look back on the lives of veterans who survived the war.
