Lewis Army Museum

The museum will re-open at the end of August 2017. We look forward to sharing our stories with the public once again.

Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum

The Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum  was organized in 1973 to provide volunteers, monetary assistance, and encouragement for the Lewis Army Museum. The Friends organization believes that the story of our Soldiers, their families, and supporters must be preserved to educate and inspire future generations of Americans. The Friends is a non-profit organization—501 (c) (3)—dedicated to keeping the history of the United States Army alive by supporting the Lewis Army Museum and its programs.

The Friends membership includes active duty and retired military personnel and their families, as well as patriotic citizens from all walks of life. Friends receive a quarterly newsletter, The Banner, a discount at the Cannon Shop, and the opportunity to participate in brunch meetings and other programs with both the museum and the Friends. Please help us to promote an appreciation and awareness of our priceless military heritage by becoming a Friend.

The Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum is currently looking for volunteers to work in the Cannon Shop (gift shop), a volunteer to manage the Cannon Shop, members interested in being on the Friends’ Board of Directors, and especially, an experienced person to take over the position of treasurer in September of 2017.

If you are interested, please contact museum staff at usarmy.jblm.imcom.list.museum@mail.mil and we will put you in touch with the Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum Board.
