More Information on Museum of
The core function of the Museum of Military History is to encourage, foster, and support education in these fields by making learning tangible, interesting, and interactive. The Museum of Military History hopes to inspire visitors with a desire to learn and think critically, encouraging curiosity. The Museum of Military History supports this desire by filling a void in today’s learning resources; it will use resources that are not readily available from other sources.
The Museum of Military History features numerous exhibits of the United States’ most prominent wars. Through the contributions and donations of the local community, they are able to preserve and display personal artifacts that were once owned and used by the local Veterans during their time of service. Each piece serves as a reminder of the sacrifice that the men and women of our nation’s Armed Forces have paid for the freedoms and liberties that they have in this country.
Developed, donated, and constructed by the Joshua Stevens Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution of St. Cloud, Florida, this exhibit features Revolutionary War-era muskets, uniforms, and other colonial artifacts.
