About Us

Step into history at the American Freedom Museum.

Come explore the Museum's 15,000 square feet of galleries containing an amazing collection of artifacts and documents from the breadth of our nation’s history. Be transported back in time as you journey from the battlefields of the American Revolution all the way to the sands of Iraq.

American Freedom Museum

You’ll see a musket used by an American minuteman at the Battle of Lexington, a cannon used by General Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, the sword carried by Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston, the bloody uniform of a Spanish-American War bugler, World War I soldiers in their trench on the Western Front, a 1943 Willys jeep, a glider cockpit, a C-47 paratrooper plane that you can actually board, the Nazi flag captured by American troops who liberated Dachau, a fully outfitted Vietnam-era Huey helicopter, and much, much more. Learn about each event from informative panels, maps, artifacts, videos, and photographs throughout the exhibits.

American Freedom Museum

A special gallery in the Museum features a document signed by every President of the United States from George Washington to Barack Obama. Included are key information and quotations from each. Items of particular interest include a lock of George Washington’s hair, an original poem written by John Quincy Adams, a Senate tally sheet from Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial, a letter from Theodore Roosevelt offering to revive the Rough Riders for service in World War I, and a letter of resignation signed by Richard Nixon. Beginning with Theodore Roosevelt, one can hear an audio clip of a selected President.

The Museum organizes and sponsors a variety of lectures and other special events and programs, inviting the public to join us in the exploration of our rich heritage.

If you are looking to experience the past and gain an appreciation for our heritage and the Veterans who made our freedoms possible, you’ll find the Museum is truly the place to visit.

The Museum is owned and operated by The Brook Hill School, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All financial contributions made to the Museum are tax-deductible.
