Take a little time out of your day to honor those who have served our great country and gave so much of themselves so that we all may have freedom.

The museum is funded entirely through donations. There are also a variety of items for sale inside the museum, such as baseball caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts and other items.

We are in the process of acquiring our non-profit status. There is a donation box located inside the museum for contributions. A receipt will be provided upon request.

With the support of Mayor Rick Sollars and the City Council, we will continue to preserve and honor the memories of all the veterans that are on display and all who have served in our armed forces from Taylor, Michigan.
