Military History Museum Opens In Broken Arrow

Posted: Updated:

The Military History Museum has opened in Broken Arrow, just in time for Veteran's Day.

The museum is in the newly-revived Rose District downtown.

Artifacts on display focus on the personal stories of Oklahomans who were involved in various wars.

Organizers say the purpose is to promote patriotism through military history.

"We want people to come to the museum, to appreciate military history, for young people to understand that we're promoting patriotism through the understanding of military history," says Brigadier General (Retired) Tom Mancino, Vice President of the Museum. "And for veterans, when they come in here, they see the equipment, the weapons, the uniforms they wore, they have that familiar feeling they had when they were in the military."

"What we really hope is people will come in, see our exhibits, see their association to Oklahoma and have an appreciation in of the service those veterans had," Mancino says.

The museum is 6400 square feet with 2,000 exhibits. Organizers say they are in need of artifacts from the Cold War, Vietnam War and Korean War.

The museum is open Tuesday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Admission is $5.
