“To honor those who have preserved our freedom” The Military Memorial Museum is a subdivision of The Nelson Museum of the West (a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation) located in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The collection began with the goal of acquiring uniforms, saddles, firearms and sabers depicting all of the enlisted and officers of the U.S. Cavalry from the Civil War to 1943 when the horse Cavalry was disbanded. The Museum has met that goal and expanded the collection far beyond the Cavalry. Included are collections of 20th century dress uniforms, army air service and air corps uniforms. The collection now specializes in General Officers’ uniforms of the United States Army and the United States Air Force. Not only are the uniforms owned by General Officers featured, but the collection also includes all uniform types authorized to be worn by General Officers in the United States Air Force and the United States Army since 1942. The museum is open from May to October.
