Every Veteran Has a Story to Tell.
The veterans in our lives will not be with us forever, but their service will inspire future generations. Their stories create a deeper understanding of their experiences, allowing us to apply the lessons of history to our own lives.
Stories are at the heart of the Veterans History Museum’s mission to honor, educate, and preserve.
WWII Navy veteran George Sarros describes his D-Day experience to an avid and respectful young student.
In our galleries, every artifact, photograph, and exhibit tells a story of battles fought, sacrifices made, relationships forged.
Through our Speakers Series, audiences learn the lessons of history through the compelling stories of notable authors on topics ranging from Pearl Harbor to the War on Terror.
In Coffee & Conversations, veterans enjoy camaraderie as they discuss their experiences and emotions in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Programs for the community offer unforgettable face-to-face opportunities for adults and children to meet and hear the stories of American heroes.
Newsletters, Tours, & Conversations
Weekly newsletters chronicle veterans’ experiences offering us a chance to see the world through their eyes. During informative gallery tours, our knowledgeable docents (we call them Pathfinders) lead visitors on a journey through history. And, after touring the galleries, guests often enjoy chatting with museum volunteers as they swap stories and share their anecdotes.
At the museum, every artifact has a story to tell.
