Editors's Note: We were sorry to hear that the Museum of the Horse Soldier is no longer open for visitors as of June 7, 2019.
The Museum of the Horse Soldier is a small, but remarkable museum about one very important aspect of American military history. It tells the story of our mounted soldiers & the partnership with their powerful, hardworking, and valiant steeds. Anyone interested in American history should visit here.
Rae Whitley is the Director of the museum. He is a vast resource on the subject of horse soldiers & a very good storyteller. You will get so much more out of your visit if you take Rae's tour. He brings the exhibits of mere things to life in fascinating back-stories. Museum of the Horse Soldier: highly recommended! Here is a short slideshow to whet your whistle. Be patient for it to load. Hover over the picture to read the captions.
