The Armed Forces History Museum is a 501(c) (3), not-for-profit Charitable Foundation dedicated to preserving our military history and educating our current and future generations as to the sacrifices made by so many to preserve our freedom.

The museum was founded in 1996 by John J. Piazza, Sr, a local businessman and history buff.    Housed in a 35,000 sq. ft. building, The Armed Forces History Museum is one of the largest, non-government funded, museums in the State of Florida.

Between 1996 and 2006 the museum and its dedicated staff operated a large mobile unit housing 16 displays. With the ever growing amount of memorabilia, vehicles and specialized military pieces, the Board of Directors determined that the development of a permanent site would be beneficial to the general public and enable the museum to fulfill its mission objectives.  A non-salaried Board of Directors governs the organization.

In accordance with Department of IRS requirements, the current and most recent federal form 990 is available for inspection at the museum’s general office weekdays between 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.  The museum’s contact personnel is Nadine Piazza, Director of Operations who may be reached at 727-539-8371 ext 104.  The address of the museum general office is 2050 34th Way North, Largo, FL  33771
