Fort Drum MuseumWelcome to the 10th Mountain Division & Fort Drum Museum


The Mission of the 10th Mountain Division & Fort Drum Museum is to collect and preserve the material history of the 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum. Using the collected material to present the history of each from its formation to the present; with the goal of being honest and accurate as well as establishing espri de corps in Soldiers, their families, civilian personnel, and the local community.

The US Army has enjoyed a connection to the local community starting at Sackets Harbor and growing to the eventual existence of Fort Drum. Multiple Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve, and foreign military units have trained on Fort Drum. Forever connected to the Fort Drum story and bringing a history dating to World War II is the 10th Mountain Division’s history which continues to today’s modern 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) fighting the ‘War on Terror.’ The Division has participated in the battle for Riva Ridge, Mount Belvedere and the Po Valley and Operations Restore Hope, Uphold Democracy, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. Today’s 10th Mountain Division Soldier continues to add to this history, taking into battle the lessons learned.

The Museum is also proud to share the Heritage Center building with the Fort Drum USO and Off The Beatin' Path Gifts.
