Donate an Artifact

The General Patton Memorial Museum has an extensive collection that consist of objects ranging in size from bullet casings, pocket knives and more found at the Desert Training Center to Tanks.  Donors understand that for generations to come the Museum will be another resource to researchers and educators.  These artifacts and documents are enormously important in preserving the story of those who stood against tyranny and protect our Freedom.

Our archives are ever growing.  We are seeking additions such as personal stories, wartime letters, diaries, film, photographs, and any artifacts pertaining to the Desert Training Center, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm.

If you have any questions about donating an artifact contact Michael Ables, Executive Director mables@generalpattonmuseum.com or contacting the Museum at 760.227.3483.

Artifact Donation Form











In addition to preserving your historic objects it is important to remember to preserve the history or story that goes with them. For example, the uniform worn by your father when he trained. Take the time to write down the story that goes with your objects; include as much information as you have. The important things are the details that are known only to you and your family. After you have written down the history, safeguard it by giving copies to other family members.
