Artifacts Restoration Needs

Many of the museum’s artifacts have been generously provided by individuals, veterans, or their families. We are always looking for new items to add to our collection. These may be small items such as uniforms, photographs, medals, or other memorabilia, or larger items such as vehicles, boats or aircraft.


If you have an item you would like to donate to the Indiana Military Museum, please contact us.
