The American Merchant Museum serves as a repository for the USMMA's extensive and valuable collection of marine art, ship models and nautical artifacts. The Museum's mission is to educate and inform visitors about the American merchant marine in a learning center for the regiment and public at large, to promote public interest in and understanding of our nation's merchant marine and to collect, preserve and exhibit historic items that represent our nation's rich seafaring heritage. The Museum employs imaginative exhibitions and displays to illustrate what the American merchant marine is and who its leaders are.
