The Armed Forces History Museum has been approved by both the Boy Scouts of America and the Girls Scouts of West Central Florida to offer a visitation patch.  Arrange a group tour for your troop and upon completion, each in attendance will receive a patch.  The visitation patches provided have been approved by both groups and can be picked up at the museum store.

The interactive displays at the museum allow the scouts to experience a more realistic version of military life throughout our history.  The museum considers it an honor to not only educate the students, but to assist in helping them understand the sacrifices that have been made by our military in order to preserve their freedom.

    This museum is a great place for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts alike. It has everything from the M1 Garand to the Patton Tank. It would be a great place to go to learn about our past wars and the United States’ involvement in each war. I liked it so much when I first came that I came back and now I volunteer. It is a LEGENDARY place to see and learn stuff from the Past that we weren’t alive to see.

    In June our Cub Scout Pack 77 from Zephyrhills participated in the Build-A-Model Camp and then toured the Museum. All I can say is the boys and their families had an awesome day! It was great to see the boys having fun and learning/experiencing history at the same time. The funny thing is . . . not one boy missed playing their video games!!! Thanks for providing an enriched experience for today’s youth.

      Thanks Katrina. We sure enjoyed having them. I am glad they had such a rich experience. Thank you so much for visiting our web-site and also for taking the time to give us your feedback. And a special thanks from AFHM for your commitment to the Cub Scouts, which no doubt, provides such a positive atmosphere at such an impressionable age.

    I’ve tried to use the email address William@armedforcesmusuem.com. but it keeps coming back to my email as unable to send message. I’ve also called the posted phone number to call about Troops/groups visiting the museum, left a message, with no call back. Our troop has heard a lot about the museum and are planning a visit the first Sat. in March, but cannot make plans as we cannot get a hold of anyone.

      I am so sorry to hear you have been having problems. May be a typo on the address – as I see it see musuem instead of museum. If our error, I apologize and will correct. William is in on the weekends and has hopefully returned your call. You can also contact Tammy as she schedules tours, groups, etc. She can be reached at tammy@armedforcesmuseum.com

      Thank you so much for letting us know about your difficulties.
