The Museum presents the role of the New Jersey Militia and National Guard within the context of the larger history of the state, using original and reproduction uniforms, weapons, photographs, artifacts and art from the period of Dutch, Swedish and British colonization through the War for Independence, Civil War and World Wars I and II to the present day, paying particular attention to the diversity of the New Jersey citizen soldier and his or her experience. The main museum is located in Sea Girt New Jersey on the campus of the National Guard Training Center, there are also annexes at the Lawrenceville Armory.


The Museum was founded in 1980 by National Guard Soldiers seeking to capture the rich history within the State. The Museum thrives today in its current location since 1982, and has taken on annexes at the Lawrenceville Armory.
