Your Foundation Membership will help us complete a successful $6.5 million capital campaign and renovation. The Brigadier General James B. Thayer Oregon Military Museum is poised to become a world-class museum and leading regional attraction.
Your support will contribute to the preservation of Oregon’s military history through its nationally significant $6+ million collection of artifacts and archives dating back to the 1860s. These 14,000+ artifacts range from rare weapons and prisoner-of-war relics to tracked vehicles and ribbon-laden uniforms.
The Brigadier General James B. Thayer Oregon Military Museum honors all service branches and will celebrate and commemorate Oregon’s military heritage: past, present, and future. A visit to the future Museum will instill renewed respect for our neighbors and co-workers who defend our freedom.
