About MILITARY HERITAGE MUSEUM IN PUNTA GORDA, FL

Location:

900 W MARION AVE, PUNTA GORDA, FL 33950, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Military Heritage Museum is to promote an understanding and respect for the rich military heritage of the United States and the sacrifices made by all who serve, living and deceased, emphasizing that freedom isn’t free.

Description

The Military Heritage Museum first opened its doors to the public in Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, Fla., on Pearl Harbor Day 2001. The goal of the Museum - then as now - was to honor veterans from all branches and eras of U.S. military service and to help the general public better understand the contributions and various experiences of American servicemen and women through authentic artifacts and individual stories.

From the start, individual veterans and numerous veteran groups enthusiastically supported the Museum. They generously donated their own personal artifacts and funding; helped build display cases, paint walls and lay carpet; and volunteered as docents.

As of November 2018, the Museum obtained a lease on a new, larger facility in expectation of delivering on the next stage of its vision: the ability to showcase more of its authentic, one-of-a-kind artifact collection and enhance its exhibits and docent-led tours with the latest in video displays, interactive capabilities and touchscreen technologies.

Our new facility opened on April 16, 2019. The goal, however, remains the same: to honor America’s military veterans, to educate and inspire current and future generations of Americans and to remind everyone that "Freedom Isn’t Free."
