Air Force Armament Museum
Eglin AFB, FL

The opportunity to share the History of Explosive Ordnance Disposal through static displays, interactive storyboards and artifacts is here!

The Air Force Armament Museum located at Eglin AFB, FL has graciously donated a quonset style building that offers 2000 square feet of space to tell the amazing story of Explosive Ordnance Disposal. The unique story of EOD dates back to its inception in 1941 to present day.

For many years, the conversation about having a historical museum that captures our history has been a topic discussed at various gatherings. We are so excited to get started and breathe life into the EOD Heritage Museum! 

The building maintenance / upkeep are a donation, but the interior set up and design will come with a cost.   We are truly looking forward to creating a place where we can tell the story of EOD in a personal way through a variety of display cases that hold artifacts, interactive holograms with headsets and more. 

We need the help of ALL of our EOD Brothers, Sisters, Family and Friends.  Through your generous donation we would be able to build the internal structure and display cases to house artifacts. The interior construction would happen in phases to ensure the story from each Major Branch of Military Service is told with a personal touch and accuracy from each era and major conflict.

Together we can reach our goal!
