About the Military Antiques & Museum

The Memorial Military Museum is named after Sgt Richard A. Penry, who was the only Petaluma native-born soldier to receive a congressional medal of honor. The museum is also dedicated to the memory of all honorable veterans who served. The museum offers visitors 2000 square feet filled with military history and elaborate displays of one-of-a-kind items that were used in Hitler’s Afrika Korps, the United States Homefront of World War II, weapons that were actually used in wars, and distinctive swords. To bring the personal side into focus, the museum also features the gear, and clothing worn by soldiers, actual letters from soldiers during wartime, personal items, art, and more. The purpose of the museum is to teach the public of the dreadfulness of war and to honor the memory and remember the bravery, and humor of the soldiers who bravely served our country.
