The Taylor Veterans Museum
|Welcome to the City of Taylor Veterans Museum|
A place to honor those who have served
City of Taylor Veterans Museum
Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Taylor Veterans Museum and its Commission were instituted by the Taylor City Council on May 5, 2009, and officially opened on May 16, 2009.
The museum features beautiful display cabinets that currently house 11 veterans personal collections -- which are on loan or have been donated to the museum -- including a Medal of Honor Recipient.
In the atrium of City Hall, a display case houses memorabilia honoring U.S. Rep. John D. Dingell, 2nd Lt. U.S. Army. Congressman Dingell is the longest-serving member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Many other military-related items are on display in the museum throughout the year. Displays will change over time to honor new arrivals.
If you or someone you know would like to showcase a service member's memorabilia in the museum, or serve as a volunteer host, please call (734) 374-8775 or fax your request to (734) 946-4636.
Take a little time out of your day to honor those who have served our great country and gave so much of themselves so that we all may have freedom.
The museum is funded entirely through donations. There are also items for sale inside the museum, such as baseball caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts and other items. If you wish to make a donation, please make your check payable to the City of Taylor, Veterans Museum.
We are in the process of acquiring our non-profit status. There is a donation box located inside the museum for contributions. A receipt will be provided upon request.
A new Museum Commission has been appointed. Officers, including a chairman, have been elected and installed.
With the support of Mayor Jeffrey Lamarand and the Taylor City Council, we will continue to preserve and honor the memories of all the veterans that art on display and all who have served in our armed forces from Taylor, Michigan.
Thank you for your continued support!

The Veterans Museum Commissioners and volunteers planted flags at the grave sites of Taylor military service veterans. Flags were planted in all three of the city owned cemeteries. The placing of the flags was on July 3, 2013 for the 4th of July holiday. Flags will be again placed in November for Veterans day holiday.
