Please CLICK HERE to visit the latest gate access procedures before visiting the Quartermaster Museum.
Since 1957 the Quartermaster Museum has preserved the history and heritage of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps, the Army's oldest logistic branch. From the Revolution to the Persian Gulf, America's secret weapon is the one that keeps soldiers supplied with food, water, clothing, fuel, shelter and other things they can't survive combat without. This weapon is the Quartermaster Corps, and at the Quartermaster Museum, you’ll see how it’s sustained American soldiers since 1775.
