Changes in military museum will debut on Pearl Harbor Day

TAYLOR – After six months of displaying memorabilia of local military heroes, organizers of the Taylor American Warriors Museum are changing some of their displays.

The room of honor, which has attracted thousands of visitors since Memorial Day 2009, will close Dec. 3 and 4 to allow volunteers to update the displays. The museum will reopen Dec. 7, which is the 68th anniversary of the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared would “live in infamy.”

The museum is located in City Hall, 23555 Goddard Road. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.

The museum opened under the guidance of Councilman Herman Ramik to honor servicemen and servicewomen. Since then, organizers have received many more contributions that have been sorted and prepared for display. All items are considered to be on loan from the families that donate the items to the museum.

Anyone interested in adding to the collection, making a donation to help fund the museum or volunteering to serve as a host can call (734) 374-8775.
