The Monroe County Vietnam Veterans Historical Museum is staffed by actual Vietnam Veterans who want to tell their story, in their own words, to this and the next generation. Packed with artifacts, the volunteer staff will tell their history, give tours and explain their exhibits. The museum is located in Norman Heck Park, North Dixie Highway, and named for one of Vietnam's earliest Monroe county casualties. Also in the recreational park are era helicopters and plaques to the dead and still missing. The vets have placed many markers and monuments throughout the memorial area. A rare and moving place dedicating to remembering Monroe county's connection to the Vietnam War. While the Park grounds are always open, the museum itself opens in May and runs through the last Saturday in September. Open now Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12noon to 4:00 p.m. No charge, but donations are welcome. Special tours can be arranged for groups of eight persons or more; call the main Monroe County Historical Museum to set up a reservation. Support your local Vietnam Veterans and learn the story from veterans- join their organization or schedule a tour!
