MISSION STATEMENT

The Military Heritage Collection of North Texas exists to collect, preserve and exhibit artifacts that honor America's military veterans and to help educate visitors about the history of loyal dedicated service and sacrifice that is 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 will do 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.
 


ACTIVITIES

Unlike many museums and collections we pride ourselves on having a collection that visitors get to interact with..

We 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.

HOURS OF OPERATION

The collection tends to be more active in the spring and summer because of the weather, however we are open most weekends in the fall and winter and always enjoy seeing visitors . Please contact us prior to your visit to confirm we are open. If you need to come on a weekday or in the evening please call and we will try to be available.
