Welcome to the Indiana Military Museum, dedicated to fostering the memory, understanding, and appreciation of U.S. military history. This is accomplished by maintaining, preserving, and displaying artifacts which represent the strength and freedom of our American heritage.
Located in historic Vincennes, the Indiana Military Museum is home to one of the best, most comprehensive collections of military memorabilia in the country. In addition to the museum’s own artifacts, including military vehicles, aircraft, uniforms, insignia, and equipment from the American Revolution to present day, it also hosts traveling exhibits from the Smithsonian Institution and others.
The Indiana Military Museum is a member of the Association of Indiana Museums and has worked closely on shared exhibits with area museums including the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science, the USS LST 325 Ship Memorial Museum, and the Candles Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute.

A a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, the Indiana Military Museum relies on the generous support of our visitors, community, and corporate sponsors.
The Indiana Military Museum incorporated in 1984 under the leadership of Knox County Superior Court Judge Jim R. Osborne. A longtime collector of military artifacts, Judge Osborne serves as the museum’s director and curator.
On May 31, 2013, the museum celebrated its grand opening at a new site adjacent to the Vincennes/Knox County Convention & Visitors Bureau—the first phase of a multi-phase future expansion plan.
