Museum History
A Museum Founding Committee was constituted in 2000 by local veterans. The committee’s task was to develop and articulate a vision for what the museum’s guiding principles would be, what the museum would look like, and how it would operate. It was incorporated by the State of California as a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and it is housed in the Veterans Memorial Building through the generosity of the County of San Luis Obispo.
