Andersonville – National Prisoner of War Museum
American POWs from the Revolutionary War to today.
Former prisoners of war partnered with the Andersonville National Historic Site to create and develop the National Prisoner of War Museum, the only museum solely dedicated to interpreting the American prisoner of war experience. The National Prisoner of War Museum is dedicated to all prisoners of war in America’s past who have served their country with dignity and distinction, so that current and future generations will be inspired by their service and sacrifice.
The museum has many exhibits and displays as well as people to answer questions and explain more about the history. Many former prisoners have contributed notes. clothing and other artifacts.
