The New York State Military Museum and Veterans Research Center tells the story of New York State’s rich military history and the service and sacrifice of its citizens through interpretive exhibitions, public programs, and the collection and preservation of artifacts and archival material related to the state’s military forces and its veterans.
ATTENTION: due to an upgrade being installed on the museum's phone system, there will be no voicemail for up to one month. Please either use email or keep trying to reach someone when they are available at their desk. We apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you.
Due to ongoing renovations, as of 10 February 2023, the Research Center is temporarily unable to answer research inquiries. We hope to re-open for inquiries sometime during the summer of 2024.
Answers to many inquiries may be found in resources available on our website. Research guides can be accessed at: https://museum.dmna.ny.gov/research/handouts
