  The Alabama Center of Military History Inc., which operates The Veterans Memorial Museum, is a non-profit, tax exempt (501c3) educational institution for the purpose of historical preservation, public display, and public education.  The Museum is dedicated to promoting and disseminating the accomplishments of American military men and women. Our emphasis is on participants of World War I and subsequent conflicts, whose survivors and families can use the Museum facilities to reminisce on their own experiences and those of parents, grandparents, and other close relatives.  The Museum has been designated by the Alabama House of Representatives as the State of Alabama Veterans Memorial Museum. 

The Veterans Memorial Museum displays more than 30 historical military vehicles from World War I to the present, as well as tableaus, artifacts, and other memorabilia dating back to the Revolutionary War.

We are open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM (excluding Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day).  Other hours, for veteran or student groups, are available by appointment.  Admission is $5 per adult, $4 for seniors, and $3 for students under 18.  Sorry, we are not set up to take credit or debit cards.

The Museum is not affiliated with the Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Huntsville,  To contact the park about memorial bricks and other matters,  visit the website at http://huntsvilleveteransmemorial.org/ .  

Please take time to visit our News page, where we discuss current happenings, new acquisitions, and opportunities for volunteers.  

The Museum issues a brief monthly email newsletter.  It covers recent events and activities, as well as events in the coming months.  If you would be interested in being on the distribution list, please email to info@memorialmuseum.org, with subject: Newsletter. 

Picture of the Month 

April 18th marks the 72nd Anniversary of the famous Doolittle Raid on the Japanese home islands.  It is reported that the crew of the Hornet printed about 80 blank maps and put them in the pilots' wardroom where they were signed like school yearbooks.  The Museum has identified five different map images in books or on the internet, each with slightly different signatures and different signature locations on the map.  The Museum is fortunate to display the above copy of an original map now with the Raider's son here in Huntsville.
