The Military Heritage Collection of North Texas exists to collect, preserve and exhibit artifacts to honor America's military veterans and to help educate visitors about the long history of loyal dedicated service and sacrifice that has been provided by the men and woman of the United States military.
THE MILITARY HERITAGE COLLECTION
Located in the South East corner of Collin County in North Texas the collection is maintained as a 501C3 Texas non profit museum collection.
Formed around 2008 the collection is entirely operated by unpaid volunteers.
The collection is open to the general public and hosts a growing number of veteran, school, youth, civic and other groups.
We try our utmost to ensure that the collection is presented in a way that does justice to the artifacts. Long term preservation of the collection is important to us as custodians of the artifacts and we have active ongoing preservation and restoration plans for everything from uniforms to armored vehicles.
We stage a number of unique events of our own during the year and as part of an outreach program we provide military vehicles and artifacts for display at events all over the North Texas area.
If you have an event and would like our participation please contact us with details.
Unlike many museums and collections we pride ourselves on having a collection that visitors get to interact with.
We have a significant collection of military uniforms and artifacts displayed in galleries and small dioramas. we also maintain a collection of period firearms that are an important part of our "HANDS ON HISTORY" experience and are often demonstrated to our visitors. By arrangement we can offer the public the opportunity to fire the weapons.
Our fleet of operating military vehicles range from motorcycles to armored vehicles, visitors are encouraged to explore the vehicles and we run them for visitors on a regular basis.
To see whats it's like to ride in one of our vehicles check out one of our videos on YOUTUBE.
We normally arrange vehicle rides for scheduled groups only, however we will try and accommodate our other visitors should time and weather permit.
