"I believe in the power of our past to inspire and instruct. We are the inheritors of a proud legacy." - Michael G. Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Support the Gallery

A unique educational experience
Founded in 1963, the National Museum of the United States Navy collects, preserves, displays, and interprets naval artifacts and artwork to inform, educate, and inspire naval personnel and the general public. The Navy is preparing a new Cold War Gallery to tell the inspiring yet little-understood story of the roles that the men and women of the Navy played in our nation's 50-year conflict with the Soviet Union. When completed, the Cold War Gallery will be a one-of-a-kind educational experience for Americans of all ages.

To raise funding necessary for this initiative, the Navy has asked the Naval Historical Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization, to seek out sponsoring partners who share this vision. Supporters will be recognized by a variety of permanent signage in the Cold War Gallery, based on the donor's giving level.

Pledge Your Support Today! For additional information about the project and how you can help, please contact The Naval Historical Foundation at 202.678.4333 or nhfwny@navyhistory.org.



Please Note:  We use a nonprofit service to process our credit card transactions. GIVEDIRECT is the name that will appear on your credit card statement - not Naval Historical Foundation. Using a 3rd party helps us keep our costs low and allows us to spend more time and money on our programs!
