Artifact Donations

Let us preserve and share your story

The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park continually seeks artifact donations to accurately and comprehensively present U.S. Military History through the lens of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division and associated units.

In addition to World War I and World War II, we are especially interested in Cold War, Vietnam, Balkans, Gulf War, and Desert Storm related artifacts. Such objects, particularly when well-documented, help to tell the story of the Big Red One. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to ask. We welcome inquiries about possible donations related to the 1st Infantry Division.

If your items do not fit within our permanent collection, we may be able to use them in our hands-on education collection.
