The African American Military History Museum bears witness to the service and sacrifice of the African American soldier from the Revolutionary War to the modern-day conflicts of Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Opened in 1942, the USO Club served as a home away from home for African American soldiers stationed at Camp Shelby. This building is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and is a Mississippi Landmark.

Hundreds of artifacts, photos and unique displays, including one of the most complete sets of authentic Spanish-American War medals, fill the restored main hall.  The museum is open for touring Wednesday – Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
