The General Patton Memorial Museum was established in 1988 to honor all veterans.
Every year for Veterans Day we have a big celebration, with free admission for that day. By going thru the memorabilia exhibited at the museum, you take a walk in history from the Civil War and work your way to Iraqi Freedom.
As part of the items on display, we have on loan from MWD the large map weighing 5 tons made in the 1920’s, as part of the design and construction of the Colorado River Aqueduct.
We show a 26 minute movie which talks about desert training, General Patton’s life and WWII. There is a tank yard with a Sherman Tank and Stuart – both from WWII and others. The gift shop has many books on Patton. There are T-shirts, hats, mugs, coins, toys, magnets, patches, pins and more.
