Come out to the American Heritage Museum to see our new visitor in the Pacific War Gallery, our Grumman (Eastern built) FM-2 Wildcat carrier-based fighter used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps during WWII. The Grumman-built F4F Wildcat played a major role in primary air defense of the Pacific fleet in the early stages of the War in the Pacific. Though it was no match for the maneuverable Japanese A6M Zero, it was a tough aircraft that could take a beating, and in the hands of a skilled pilot, could be a match for the Japanese attacker.

We will have the FM-2 Wildcat on display in the museum through the summer - we hope to see you soon! More info on visiting at www.americanheritagemuseum.org/

At the American Heritage Museum you explore America’s conflicts, beginning with the Revolutionary War to today.  You’ll discover, and interact with, our heritage through the History, the national effort developing new technologies of warfare, and the Human Impact of America’s fight to preserve the freedom we all hold dear.

The American Heritage Museum is housed in a 65,000 + square foot building located at the Collings Foundation’s headquarters in Stow, Massachusetts. The concept of the American Heritage Museum began when the Foundation was selected to received the massive collection of tanks, armored vehicles and military artifacts for the family of Jacques M. Littlefield in 2013.

Receiving this historically important and extensive collection was a tremendous honor for the Collings Foundation. Exhibiting these artifacts in the most meaningful way possible is our goal. We designed the American Heritage Museum to fully engage people in understanding our turbulent past. In this remarkable place, American history will be explored, studied and most of all, remembered. Through educational interpretation, and a chronologically arranged series of dioramas and exhibits, the American Heritage Museum brings the history of our veterans to life.

Among the staggering variety of rare relics, the American Heritage Museum features over fifteen tanks and artifacts that are the only ones on public display in North America. These include: M1A1 Abrams Tank, T-34 Tank, Kommandogerrat 38 German Rangefinder, Leichter Panzerspähwagen SdKfz 222 Armored Vehicle, Matilda MK.II Tank, Jumbo Sherman Tank, IS-2 Tank, Panzer 1 Tank, SCUD Missile and Launcher, Ho-Ro Tank and many more.
