Congressional Medal of Honor Society
The Medal of Honor Museum
A Museum for the Extraordinary
The Society's Museum is home to the Medal of Honor, the Recipients who wear it, and the values inherent in the Medal - courage, commitment, integrity, sacrifice, citizenship, and patriotism.
Designed to bring the Recipients' stories to life, the museum is located on board the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant, SC. Interactive exhibits focus on Recipients' stories from various wars and a searchable database allows visitors to explore all Medal of Honor citations. Permanent exhibits of artifacts tangibly connect the past and present.
The last gallery focuses on how a Recipient's moment of valor can have a lasting impact on the United States' story. It is a moment for visitors to reflect and gather further inspiration on how their own lives can make a difference - how embracing the Medal of Honor values can impact those around them and the world we live in.
Pay a visit today, and show respect to those who went "above and beyond the call of duty" - reflect on their stories and then build your own.
The new Medal of Honor Museum experience will reopen in Spring 2024.
The Medal of Honor Museum is part the overall experience at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant, SC (just across the harbor from Charleston, SC). See the Patriots Point website for admission details!
