The Nelson museum of the West and the Military Memorial Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation located in the heart of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Founded in 1998, the mission of the Museum is to collect, preserve and exhibit artifacts that interpret the history, art and lifestyle of the West and the Army and Air Force and to make these resources available for the education and enjoyment of the public. To accomplish this task, we are asking for your assistance.

The Museum is soliciting the donation of works of art, uniforms, insignia, firearms, as well as cowboy and Indian collectibles to be included in the permanent collection. Cash donations are also appreciated and would be used solely to benefit the Museum and to assist in furthering the mission of the Nelson Museum of the West and the Military Memorial Museum. As a non-profit tax exempt entity, your donation is fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Thanks to past contributions, the Museum has made significant contributions to the families of military personnel deployed in the Middle East, provided scholarship funds, permitted free admission for school children, preschoolers and persons with learning disabilities, held fundraisers for local groups and sponsored several western festivals for the community. Your assistance will help us continue these activities.
