Property Description

The mission of the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey is to preserve and explain the military heritage of New Jersey and enhance public understanding of how armed conflicts and military institutions have shaped our state and national experience. The museum collects, preserves and displays artifacts, documents and memorabilia that have specific historical significance to the Army National Guard, the Air National Guard and the Naval Militia of New Jersey.

The Center for US War Veterans Oral Histories, in conjunction with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, collects recorded memories from veterans from every branch of service and every war and conflict, including Cold War. Individuals receive their DVD copy, along with a legislative resolution at a recognition luncheon. The Project is ongoing and veterans are encouraged to sign up either in person or via our website.

Volunteers and student interns are encouraged to apply, too.
