About

Permanent Collection

As North America’s only art museum focused on exhibiting combat inspired art we bridge the gap between the perception and the reality of combat. We strive to show combat veteran art that advances our mission through exhibitions, comprehensive education and continuous collection. Our permanent collection, located in Chicago, IL comprises over 2,500 artefacts, and the museum has welcomed hundred of thousands to visit.

Our collection is comprised of art created by those who served on the front lines of conflicts ranging from Korea to current day. We look forward to seeing you soon — come see the world through the personal eyes of a combat veteran. Come and embrace combat inspired art.
