Learn all about the military history of Arizona with information and displays that represent many conflicts that have affected the people of Arizona and the world.

The Arizona Military Museum is operated by the Arizona National Guard Historical Society, and it officially opened in the fall of 1981. The history that is covered in the museum includes the Spanish Conquistadors, the Civil War, the Indian and Spanish-American Wars, both World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The collection is interesting and impressive. The museum has uniforms, vehicles, artillery, mementos, and many other interesting items and artifacts.

The building in which the museum is housed is also a significant part of Arizona's military history, as well. The raw adobe building was first constructed in 1936 as a Depression-era public works project and was used as a National Guard arsenal until World War II. The building was also used as a maintenance shop for German prisoners of war confined at a nearby POP camp.

Many people visit the museum, including a large number of school groups. People of all ages enjoy learning about the history that's discussed here and seeing the artifacts. The military library has many books, documents, and maps to teach about military actions from all over the world.
