Our collection consists of objects ranging in size from tiny uniform buttons to large military aircraft. Our donors understand that as America’s WWII Museum, we will be a resource to researchers and educators for generations to come. Our artifacts and documents are enormously important in helping to bring history to life.

Due to the generous donations of WWII veterans, their families, friends and other donors, the Museum has neared its goal of acquiring a collection that is representative of the American Experience in World War II, thus the Museum must be selective with any new artifacts it accepts. Our archives, though, are ever growing, and we are particularly seeking additions to our archive of personal stories and wartime letters, diaries and photographs. We ask that you please read the FAQs and Common WWII donation pages, and then contact us concerning any material that you wish to donate to the Museum.

There are 3 easy steps in the donation process. This site will guide you through each of them — just click on the "Next" button when you're ready to move to the next step.
