The Indiana Military Museum contains one of the best overall collections of military memorabilia from the Revolutionary War to the present day.  The museum has a vast array of unique artifacts, vehicles, artillery, weaponry, uniforms, insignia and artwork. The outdoor grounds is a museum in itself.  Entering the gate you immediately see a missile, a C-47 and a full size German Atlantic Wall bunker.  Additional planes, half-tracks, trucks, jeeps, and tanks dot the landscape.  

 

IMM has plenty of room for camps and displays.  Re-enactor amenities include water, breakfast and a spaghetti dinner.  Food vendors available during public hours. 

 

All allied and axis units interested in participating should be members of a recognized re-enactment society. HRS authenticity and safety standards will be followed and can be found at http://www.worldwartwohrs.org.  Political flags or uniforms are not permitted.
