Danbury - Military Museum of Southern New England

125 Park Avenue
203-790-9277

The Museum opened in 1985 as a not for profit organization, dedicated to the preservation of our nations military history. The original intent of the museum was to maintain the memory of American Tank Destroyer units of the Second World War.

Over our 20 year history, thanks to generous donations and the hard work of many unpaid volunteers, the museum's collection has expanded to over 10,000 artifacts covering all of the armed services of the United States. We currently display a vivid cross section of 20th century American military history. Many of our vehicles are extremely rare, often the only example in the western hemisphere!

The museum staff is composed primarily of unpaid volunteers who are responsible for designing and installing exhibits, running the gift shop and participating in public events.

If you enjoy military history you have to go to this Museum. Military armor everywhere with opportunities to enter the equipment. It is an amazing Museum!

Showed up Friday @ 11am after a 1.5hr drive when they were reportedly open and waited for over an hour. No one showed up! Waste of our time

I recommend a visit. I've never seen so many bullets and cannons together in one spot. They even had one those flags they gave to the Kamikazes before taking off, and the katana too. Amazing!!!

Great hidden gem. This museum has awesome displays and many interesting vehicles that you can get up close and personal with. The staff is great as well, especially Phil at the front desk who greeted us warmly and told many funny and intriguing stories! I would highly recommend it!
