Monetary donations to the Museum assist us in our efforts to honor those who served in the United States military. Through your support, we can bring new exhibitions to the Museum, provide educational programs, and continue the stewardship of our collections. Honoring those who served and preserving what they left behind remains our upmost priority.

If you are interested in donating to or becoming a sustaining member of the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, please contact Programs Manager Melissa Koski at (601) 558-2306 or


The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum accepts 19th, 20th, and 21st Century objects, equipment, documents, and photographs that have an emphasis on the military service of  Mississippians and those who trained at Camp Shelby or other military installations in Mississippi.  The best way to determine if your artifact would enhance the Museum’s  collection is to contact members of our collections team before visiting the Museum. Please note that  in-person offers of donation are by appointment only.
