Welcome to the Cold War Museum Contribution Center

The Cold War Museum is a nonprofit corporation as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Help Us Educate, Entertain and Inform Generations to Come

The Cold War Museum is building an historically accurate record of the people, places and events of the Cold War. By educating future generations about the fears, divisions, and dangers of the Cold War, the Museum enables visitors to reflect upon the global geopolitical climate of the Cold War period and compare it to that of today.

The Cold War Museum provides learning opportunities regarding Cold War implications for public policy, public administration, national security, international peace and arms control. In this way, The Cold War Museum enables future generations to learn from the successes and failures of the past and, we hope, advance the cause of freedom everywhere.
