The Board of Directors of the National Medal of Honor Museum and Arlington, Texas, Mayor Jeff Williams recently unveiled a rendering of the museum, which is scheduled to open in Arlington in 2024. The modern, expansive museum will serve as the permanent home to a collection of MOH recipients’ stories and memorabilia (including Medals of Honor), as well as classrooms for students and a conference space.
The museum will offer “an experience that draws personal and emotional connections to Medal of Honor recipients and their stories, while shedding light on the wars in which they fought and the ideals that the Medal of Honor represents,” according to the museum’s website. Visitors “will come to understand the meaning and price of freedom—and appreciate the virtue of putting service above self.”
The nonprofit museum has received more than $61 million in contributions.
