“To teach and educate”
The primary mission of the United States Twelfth Armored Division Memorial Museum will be to serve as a display and teaching museum for the study of World War II and its impact on the American people. The Museum will accomplish its mission under direction of the Museum Board of Directors through exhibition and education programs using the Museum's owned and borrowed Historical Collection as a resource. This collection is chiefly 12th Armored Division World War II archives, memorabilia, and oral histories, along with selected equipment and material loaned or donated by others.
We are the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum located in Abilene, TX. We are the one and only museum devoted solely to the men of the 12th Armored Division. We are an oddity as the men who served in the 12th were only active during WWII and the division was stood down after the war - yet we have an almost complete story of a WWII division carefully taken care of here in Abilene, Tx. Who we are and what we have continues to be an unraveling mystery for many, but we have been here in Abilene since 2001! We have 3 floors of exhibits and we welcome you to come visit!
