Established in 2004 by World War II veterans Dal Estes and Neil Bach as a living, hands-on museum to recognize the sacrifices and service of U. S. military veterans from Livingston County and central Illinois. The museum is located on the third floor of the Illinois Route 66 Hall of Fame & Museum.

Their goal is to educate schools, civic groups and the general public about the history of local veterans from World War I to the present conflicts.

They are staffed by both veteran and non-veteran volunteers and funded and supported by donations from visitors, local businesses and the Humiston and Byrne Trusts.

Walking through the museum is like taking a tour of the 20th Century, including artifacts, films, books, uniforms and weapons of several wars: Iraq and Afghanistan, Korean Conflict, Operation Desert Storm, Vietnam War, World War I, and World War II

The museum does not glorify war, but shows the best attributes of men and women caught up in war. In doing so, they respectfully honor the service of America's veterans.
