Brevard VMC Traveling Trunk Program
Bringing History to Life
The BVMC Military Museum offers a Traveling Trunk Program to help bring history to life in schools, libraries, other museums, or youth groups.
Each trunk focuses on a specific war and contains an assortment of items—original or reproduction—that would have been commonly used by soldiers during that time in our nation’s history.
The contents of these trunks can be used for research, exhibition, or as a hands-on educational resource that piques student interest in history by engaging them in object-based learning.
Users are encouraged to contact local veterans or veterans organizations if they would like to add a human perspective to the artifacts in the trunks.
Trunks are available for the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War.
