There is a demonstrated need in this country for more education and awareness
about the American military experience, both for children and adults. The
Museum of Military History helps to fill this need by providing interactive exhibits,
workshops, lectures, publications and outreach programs.
The museum's exhibits and displays are dynamic, entertaining, hands-on and
interactive, to impart both knowledge and critical thinking skills, while at the same time
inspiring a sense of fun and adventure. The Museum of Military History layers its
exhibits and information on a number of different levels. This fosters learning for a
diverse audience, including students, experts and amateurs from local, national and global audiences.
The goal is to help people from all walks of life, and with all levels of knowledge, to better understand and evaluate the experience of combat for American veterans. To this end, the Museum of Military History combines aspects of science, history, art and anthropology museums. The result will be an exploration of modern combat and what it was like as an American to serve his or her country in time of war. This will serve as an important center for education and culture in Osceola County.
The core function of the Museum of Military History is to encourage, foster and support education in these fields by making learning tangible, interesting and interactive. The Museum of Military History hopes to inspire our visitors with a desire to learn and think critically, encouraging curiosity.
The Museum of Military History supports this desire by filling a void in today's learning resources; it will use resources that are not readily available from other sources.
The Museum of Military History provides interactive exhibits, games and displays from which people of all ages and backgrounds can learn about the individual soldier's experience.
