Our History

Our Mission

Open to the public on Veterans Day 2005, the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the legacy and dignity of all U.S. veterans through public display, and to educate the public, especially our youth, to the experiences and history of veterans during times of war. The Museum seeks to ensure that current and future generations understand the true nature of war, and recognize the sacrifices made in the name of freedom and security.

The primary focus of the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum is to further the education of students everywhere with an up close and personal experience of pivotal battles in which the United States participated. The Museum strives to preserve the “living history” of veterans from all branches of the service by telling the personal stories of their war experiences on several kiosks throughout the Museum. A rich selection of lesson plans and materials for general classroom use is available.
