Military Museum of Fort Worth

Every Soldier has a Story

The Military Museum of Fort Worth tells the stories of brave American soldiers, who risked life and limb on the battlefield. But make no mistake about it: The museum is not about the glorification of war, but rather about telling very individual stories of soldiers and the suffering that armed conflict inevitably brings with it.

A good half of all exhibits are generous donations from former military personnel. The museum currently houses around 2,500 artifacts – each of which tells a unique story. Among them are uniforms, weapons, and field equipment.

People are more than happy to donate, because Fort Worth’s large military community is in full support of the museum, with former military families regularly offering to have their own remnants from their active days on display and thus let others participate in their very individual history.

One of the many highlights of the exhibition is the life-size recreation of a World War I trench, which impressively conveys what a frightening experience it must have been to be involved in relentless trench warfare.

The Military Museum of Fort Worth is located on the lower level of Ridgar Mall, between Dillard’s and Penny’s. Former as well as current members of the military get free admission.
