Veterans Memorial Museum of Terre Haute
More photos of the tour can be found in the "Photo Albums" section to the left.
Many members of the Wabash Valley Genealogy Society enjoyed a wonderful private tour of the Veterans Memorial Museum of Terre Haute with a special "welcome" from Brian Mundell.
This 2000 sq. ft. Museum is filled with a variety of military memorabilia from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Iraq, and Afghanistan, with the sole purpose of preserving our proud military heritage and honoring our Veterans in such a way that their sacrifices are never forgotten. Many of the items have been donated by residents from the surrounding areas but the majority of the items have been collected by founder, Brian Mundell.
If you were not able to attend, you can visit the museum at 1129 Wabash Avenue, Terre Haute, Indiana. The museum is open on Saturdays from noon until 4:00 p.m. or other times by appointment (812-208-1396 or email@example.com). There is no charge but donations are warmly welcomed.
