The National Mounted Warfare Foundation has created a lasting way for donors to contribute to the development and construction of the National Mounted Warrior Museum (NMWM) outside of Fort Hood, Texas. The NMWM will be a world-class, family-friendly, and state-of-the-art military museum to preserve, interpret, and honor the legacy of mounted warfare in the U.S. Army by providing unique educational experiences for soldiers and their families and for the civilian community across the nation, telling the stories of soldiers who have served in mounted units, and depicting the history and value of Central Texas and its unique relationship with Fort Hood.
Projected to open in late 2020, Phase I of the National Mounted Warrior Museum (NMWM) is projected to be an iconic 48,000 square foot building that will include 24,000 square feet of interactive and immersive permanent exhibit galleries and over 7,000 square feet of temporary exhibit space. Phase I will also include children’s discovery areas, multipurpose conference / classrooms, simulation activities, administrative spaces, and a children’s playscape outside the museum building.
Current plans for the NMWM project a museum entry plaza consisting of donor bricks honoring and memorializing soldiers, veterans, family members, community members, and units that have served on Fort Hood. Bricks are available in two sizes, 4” x 8” for $100 and 8” x 8” for $200. A 4x8 brick will have three lines of text, and an 8x8 will have six lines. Each line can have up to 18 characters. If you wish to order a brick with a logo, please contact the Foundation directly. Each brick inscription will be reviewed for appropriateness of the message.
Bricks will not be produced until the Foundation is ready to place them into the ground at the museum (projected groundbreaking is Spring 2018). Donors will receive a letter of donation from the Foundation, and will have the option to purchase a donor certificate and / or souvenir bricks for an additional fee. Additionally, donors will be able to find their bricks on the virtual brick wall on the Foundation’s website.
