About Us

The Military Veterans Museum & Education Center is a family friendly, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, history museum located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin that collects and displays donated military artifacts to educate the public on American military history. We have the largest military vehicle museum in Wisconsin thanks to our new John E. Kuenzl Motor Pool.

We believe it’s the story and the people behind each vehicle and artifact that’s crucial to educating the public about our military efforts as a nation. Some of our artifacts include weapons, uniforms, vehicles, gear, medals and more from many of the wars in our nation’s history.Five World War II veterans from Neenah started the museum, opening first in the building that is now Becket’s Restaurant. We are now located near the EAA Museum.

The museum is run by volunteers, including the mechanics who keep our military vehicles running. It is free to visit, but we ask for a small cash donation for the upkeep of museum operations. Bring the whole family for a fun and educational adventure!

 

Staff & Volunteers

The museum is run by 17 Board of Directors members as well as operational staff and committees, including:

  • Operations Management Committee
  • Fundraising Committee
  • Buildings and Grounds Committee
  • Marketing Committee
  • Collections Committee
  • Membership and Outreach Committee
Halftrack Red Box
