Welcome to the

Honoring our Nation’s military history through education and preservation

Our Story

Our organization began with a shared dream of 5 WWII veterans. This group of men dreamed of the day there would be a museum in the East-Central part of Wisconsin dedicated to telling the stories of our Honored Veterans.

member and visitor comments

I was impressed by all the military artifacts and information in the building. The volunteers who greeted us were very friendly. And more than willing to answer questions. I recommend this place to anyone interested in military history. I’ve already decided this is one place I will be going back to.

Nice small museum with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Exhibits were very well cared for. A nice hour to spend.

There was a lot more here than I thought. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. The amount of vehicles they have that you can see up close and personal and even the weapons was very impressive.
It’s a free museum and is fairly close to the aviation museum. What stands out to me is that most veteran’s museums tend to show more “attack” vehicles. This museum shows a lot of the other vehicles: Supply vehicles, wreckers, etc. These are the “hidden” parts of the war effort that finally get some credit. Also they try to get the stories behind the vehicles, which gives a lot more insight into the service.
