NOTICE FROM THE POLICE & MILITARY MUSEUM

When we opened our doors in May of 2002, our mission was to honor those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces or in Law Enforcement, federal, state, and local, including first responders and those in critical health care industry. The past 20 years we have had thousands of visitors tour the museum. Visitors from every state as well as from overseas have signed our guest register. And we have hosted many local school groups and area organizations as we recognize THE PRICE OF FREEDOM paid by all those who serve. During the pandemic, we reviewed the condition of our museum facility and have determined the building is no longer capable of being used for its intended purpose. The structure is very old and has numerous problems that our board of directors believe would be too expensive to complete. (ROOF REPAIRS, ELECTRICAL/PLUMBING ISSUES, FIRE SPRINKLER UPDATES, TERMITES, and AIR CONDITIONING, among other's) AND we do not have any other sites or financial capabilities with which to relocate. Because we are a 501c3 non-profit organization, the assets owned by the museum are being transferred to other area museums to continue to support out original mission to honor those who serve, if only a new location.

“THE MUSEUM IS NOW CLOSED”
