Dedicated in November 2009, the Hamilton Military Museum is located at Veterans Memorial Park, next to the Vietnam War Memorial replica and Walk of Education in T or C, NM.
Through the generous donations of men and women who have served and their families in the armed forces, this museum and its contents are a living memorial and history of our country and the dedication of those who served. This is their story. Many rare and educational exhibits may be found within the museum: historic war displays range from a military button collection to Buffalo Soldier memorabilia, and there’s a special focus on local heroes.
Displays are continually being updated and expanded.
