12TH ARMORED DIVISION MEMORIAL MUSEUM

The primary mission of the United States Twelfth Armored Division Memorial Museum will be to serve as a display and teaching museum for the study of World War II and its impact on the American people. The Museum will accomplish its mission under direction of the Museum Board of Directors through exhibition and education programs using the Museum’s owned and borrowed Historical Collection as a resource. This collection is chiefly 12th Armored Division World War II archives, memorabilia, and oral histories, along with selected equipment and material loaned or donated by others. The education plan will focus on the following five objectives:

Expand academic access to World War II historical materials, veterans, and their families, Preserve the history of the 12th Armored Division for study, research, and investigations by future generations, Develop and maintain a teaching museum for training in public history professions, Create innovative new education programs for students of all ages, and Establish a technology bridge between the 12th Armored Division Historical Collection and the rest of the world.
