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.

Open Wednesday through Sunday

We are open Wednesday through Sunday each week from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The AHM is following State of MA visitor capacity limits to 25% of maximum museum capacity, allowing up to 250 persons inside the building at any given time. Visitor volume has not exceeded this since the COVID restrictions and our one-way visitor pattern, well-ventilated and wide open main gallery, continual sanitation and cleaning schedule, and over 65,000 square feet of display space allows for a safe, socially distant visitor experience.
