Formerly the WWII Victory Museum, the National Military History Center contains one of the largest, most captivating collections of WWII artifacts ever assembled. Our mission is to emphasize preservation, education and inspiration by spotlighting the personalities, technologies and conflicts that have defined America’s military from the Revolutionary War through today. The National Military History Center is also home to the Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum, the NE Indiana Racing Museum, and the NE Indiana Baseball Association and Hall of Fame. The NMHC is currently working on efforts to expand with new galleries dedicated to Young America’s military, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, and today’s War on Terror.
