Fort Meade Museum
The Fort Meade Museum was established in 1963 as the First U.S. Army Museum. Its purpose was to honor the service and sacrifices of the American Soldier. In 1973, the museum became permanently established as the Fort George G. Meade Museum. Its purpose now is to collect, preserve, study and exhibit military artifacts- particularly those items related to Fort Meade - along with early Armerican armor.
The museum also provides educational services such as the identification of military artifacts, lectures about mlitary history and the history of Fort Meade, and battle staff rides to local battlefields. The Fort Meade Museum is free and open to the general public.
