American Heritage Museum - Hudson, Massachusetts

Plan a Visit to the American Heritage Museum in Hudson, Massachusetts!

Summertime is a great time for a family getaway to Massachusetts, the Birthplace of America! And the new American Heritage Museum, located only 30 minutes outside of Boston, offers an amazing activity that’s both educational and exciting for your family. Within our 67,000 square foot museum, you’ll explore the Jacques M. Littlefield Collection of Tanks and Military Vehicles from World War I and World War II through the battlefields of today.

Some of what you'll see in the American Heritage Museum

The American Heritage Museum features over 95 tanks, vehicles, aircraft, and large artifacts contained within in an interactive chronological display of galleries starting with the Revolutionary War. Visitors will experience a World War I trench, walk through a World War II tank factory, see a simulated battle between a German Panther and Russian T-34 tank, see the last surviving fighter aircraft from the Pearl Harbor attack, experience the only Gulf War era SCUD missile on public display in North America, and see and learn more about the only publicly displayed M1A1 Abrams, the main battle tank used today. There are over 20 tanks, artifacts, and vehicles that you’ll only find displayed here at the American Heritage Museum!

We offer both driving experience programs and rides aboard our 1944-vintage M4 Sherman Medium Tank or M24 Chaffee Light Tank on the tank course right behind the museum!
