Houston: Buffalo Soldiers National Museum

Founded in 2000, the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum preserves and promotes the history and traditions of African Americans who served in the U.S. armed forces, including the Buffalo Soldiers.  The museum tells the stories of these largely unsung heroes through exhibits and a notable collection of artifacts.

Considered one of the world’s largest collections of African American military memorabilia dating from 1770-2000, the museum is staffed principally by military retirees who offer their personal stories as part of the tour.  An introductory video highlights the role played by African Americans in the armed forces since the American Revolution; the museum also hosts battle reenactments.
