WWII Soldiers in Pacific Theater reviewing souvenirs

Donate to the Collection

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum preserves and shares stories of Wisconsin veterans from the Civil War to the present. The museum will consider for donation military items such as dog tags, personalized items, and souvenirs as well as diaries, letters, photographs, military records, and training material. We also collect oral histories of service members.
