The Mississippi Armed Forces serves as the military history museum for the Mississippi state. It gives honor to the service and sacrifices of the servicemen and women in all branches of Mississippi and from other parts of the county that underwent training in Mississippi during periods of war. The Museum features state-of-the-art exhibits that narrate stories of heroes and heroines of our Republic and it further serves through the education of the future generations about the price that was paid in order to achieve freedom and prosperity for the nation.

The Museum features an exhibit about the conflicts of the 19th Century, including the War of 1812, the Mexican War, American Civil War, and the Spanish-American War. There is also a World War I Gallery which features exhibits that explain how the United States came to be involved in the war. This includes the establishment of Camp Shelby as well as artifacts from the war at sea, in the air, and on land.

Basically, these exhibits help visitors trace the role of Mississippi in the nation?s defense from the War of 1812 up to the present. Other exhibits include the World War II, Korean War, Vietnam Conflict, the Medal of Honor, Global War on Terrorism, and many more.
