Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum has been collecting, preserving and sharing history with the public for 110 years. Did you know that less than 10 percent of the Museum’s artifacts are on exhibit at any one time?
Our collection needs proper storage and care in order to protect and share it with future generations.
Now you can help S&S preserve vulnerable parts of its holdings by adopting an artifact. Because of an item’s condition at the time of donation, or simply due to the ravages of time, some artifacts are too fragile to exhibit.
Your tax-deductible donation to the Adopt an Artifact program will support the restoration and storage of a piece of your choosing and preserve its historical integrity.
Adopting an artifact is a meaningful way to get involved with the museum’s collection and help provide the support needed to continue to care for our ever growing collection. Surprise a friend or loved one by adopting an artifact in his or her honor, or show your pride in S&S history by adopting one for yourself.
Only through the support of the community can we continue to care for and exhibit artifacts that connect us with the past. Thank you for helping to preserve our history!

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum will be temporarily closed to walk-in business as part of an international effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Until we can safely reopen, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum will be offering guided tours of the museum by appointment only. The tours will be a 90 minute experience and will be led by a museum docent. We can accommodate any group size from 1 to 20 people. This guided tour program will allow visitors to enjoy the museum in a more controlled environment.
The fee structure for this special guided tour program is as follows:
1 person: $25
2 people: $40 ($20 per person)
3 or more people: $15 per person
*Please note that full payment will be due at the time of the reservation.
The health and safety of our visitors and our staff is our priority. Due to COVID-19 the group tours will only be offered to groups smaller than 20 people in order to ensure proper social distancing and comfort. Face masks are required to be worn covering the mouth and nose throughout the museum. Hand sanitizing stations and additional cleaning protocols have been added throughout the public areas of the museum.
