The Museum is of national significance and a servant of America’s military heritage. We focus on the community and visitors to Miami-Dade County and the state of Florida. We host nationally recognized youth groups such as the Scouts and Sea Cadets. Veterans receive one-on-one counseling from qualified VA professionals within the Museum. Interns from Florida International University receive instruction and experience in collections management and historic preservation. Educational programming for students from kindergarten to college is available. We have forged new partnerships with schools, recognizing that the kind of learning we offer is in line with the curriculum’s focus on critical thinking, contextual thinking, and better citizenship. Lectures, patriotic events, and traveling and special exhibits round out the activities offered by the Museum.
