WE'RE GROWING...

… growing in demand, growing in artifacts, growing in size and growing in program offerings. We have relocated to a larger facility! Come see our 'NEW' museum..

Explore centuries of U.S. military history – and discover the lasting legacies they left behind.

Discover rare artifacts and perspectives from the Seminole tribes of Southwest Florida – and learn both sides of this lengthy and costly chapter in our history

Explore our extensive collection of more than 4,000 literary titles and more than 1,000 original documents – free and open to anyone who is interested in learning more about U.S. military history and heritage.

Keep checking back with us when we once again host a special “oral history” event for local and visiting veterans. Those participating in the event will have the opportunity to share their personal military combat stories with an Witness to War interviewer and videographer.

Experience our 245-seat theater and enjoy the many scheduled events. We will host a variety of activities in this beautiful center including military related films, academic lectures, arts and cultural events, conferences and much more. Get your tickets today for upcoming activities.

CONNECT

With 20,000-plus historic artifacts, veteran-led tours and thousands of oral histories, the Military Heritage Museum provides visitors an opportunity to fully understand and experience military history in an authentic, personal and unique way.

DISCOVER

By hearing the big story of military history through small, individual stories, visitors learn about well-known events from an entirely new perspective — and about events and viewpoints they never knew.

ENGAGE

Classified as an education facility by the State of Florida, the Museum offers seminars, lectures and outreach for all ages, one of the largest historical collections of military artwork and photography, and a library and research center.
