We eagerly anticipate the grand opening of the Military Heritage Museum and Education Center in early summer 2013. Located at the corner of 8th Street and Riverfront Drive in Sheboygan, the museum will have educational programs for students and also serve as a repository for every branch of the military. Military memorabilia (mess kits, dog tags, metals, uniforms, etc) is now being accepted for loan or donation from veterans and veterans' families, as well as monetary donations. Contact us for more info.
Our generous volunteers have been busy painting and renovating the museum’s space to accommodate the many military exhibits. The carpeting will be installed soon and exhibits will be constructed.
“We Honor Veterans” Exhibit Donations
We would like to thank the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice for the donation of the “We Honor Veterans” exhibit. Military memorabilia (mess kits, dog tags, medals, uniforms, etc) are now being accepted for loan or donation from veterans and veterans' families, as well as monetary donations.
The Naval Museum and Education Center has been renamed to the Military Heritage Museum and Education Center to better reflect all armed services.
