Help Support the American Heritage Museum with your Advance Sale Admission, Membership, and Gift Shop Purchases…

And Get the Chance to Experience a Once-In-a-Lifetime WWII History Experience!

First of all, it is our profound hope that everyone in your family is safe, healthy, and following the CDC rules that seek to get us through this unprecedented public health crisis.

We also would like to take a moment to thank you for being a friend of the American Heritage Museum. We appreciate your support over the years as we planned, built, and opened our new museum. Your enthusiasm and dedication to our living history mission is one of the primary reasons why we have been able to meet our shared mission of preserving our nation’s heritage.

Like many Americans, you might be reading this from home right now, as the impact of the Coronavirus spreads around the country. You might also be reading this from your work at one of our designated essential sectors helping to fight this outbreak or provide needed services to citizens.

And, like you, we are also feeling the effects of the Coronavirus here in Massachusetts. The American Heritage Museum has closed to the public through at least April 10th and all scheduled school visits through the end of April have been cancelled or postponed by schools impacted by this crisis. With this, our much needed operational fundraising has come to a halt.

Inspired by the American people in World War II, our small staff is rolling up our sleeves and doing what needs to be done by any means possible in this difficult time.

We ask for your help.
While we are doing more with less, you can help contribute to our shared efforts to preserve our mission of honoring those who have protected our nation. And you can do it from home on your computer or smartphone. Your purchase of advance admission ticketsmembershipgift shop merchandisetickets to the Battle for the Airfield, or even a one-time or recurring donation all goes to help us continue our mission during this difficult time.

For choosing to help us this month, we would like to give you the opportunity to win the experience of a lifetime with the American Heritage Museum…

Purchase from our Online Gift Shop & PX

As many of us are at home weathering out the outbreak, this is an opportune time for reading and playing. We have some great items in our PX store to bide the time. Our top pick for kids of all ages are the Cobi building block toys. These are really nice, fun to build, with good quality and detail – we have a great variety! This is also a great time to pick up a good book. Our top recommendations are Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and two books by Adam Makos; A Higher Call and Devotion. All are epic stories that will educate and entertain!
