The General George Patton Museum is scheduled to reopen Aug. 16 after 9 months of extensive renovations. Free and open to the public, the museum’s hours will be 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and will also be open during the following federal holidays: Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.

The museum’s focus remains the same: highlighting principles of leadership through engaging exhibits and the largest single collection of famed U.S. Army General George S. Patton Jr. artifacts. Among the changes made to the museum are a new roof; heating, ventilation and air conditioning system with humidity control; sidewalk; awning over the sidewalk and entry area; ADA-compliant restrooms; a repaved parking lot; and additional lighting in the parking lot and along the sidewalk.

Plans to provide visitors direct access to the Patton Museum from U.S. 31W (Dixie Highway) are presently on hold due to funding constraints but will be reexamined regularly to determine future feasibility within the resources available. From the Chaffee (main) Gate), the museum is a 1.7-mile and 4-minute drive. Follow signs to get to the museum. Parking is free.
