Visit the Museum of Military History

Each visit the Museum of Military History helps to preserve the sacrifice that was paid by the men and women of our Nation’s Armed Forces. It not only helps to sustain the museum but it also allows you to show your support for a local non-profit whose mission is to education the public about the cost of freedom that was paid for by the brave men and women of our nation’s Armed Forces.
