The Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center is the only one of its kind in the entire country. The Museum & Educational Center serves as the local resource of Vietnam Era information. NJVVMF promotes its mission by educating the public on this dynamic time period. As an educator and/or student, we have many resources available for you.
Whether you want to book a tour for your class, an association, business, or other organization, our group tours are a great way to see the Memorial and Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center.
In addition to our school tours we are developing new programs, even for schools that are unable to travel to us.
Programs include the Traveling Trunk, Connecting to the 60s Puzzle Activity, and Distance Learning. PLEASE NOTE: all trunk rentals must be picked up and returned in person to our facility, we no longer ship trunks offsite.
The Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center is an accredited professional development credit provider for New Jersey.
Whether you are a teacher, museum professional, board member, historical society volunteer, librarian, retiree, history bluff, or student, you will learn different in-depth topics for practical application.
We also host an Annual Forum for educators on a new topic each year. Click here for more information about our workshops.
Available by appointment, there are over 1,500 books, media, and archival materials from the Vietnam era in the Resource Room. Soon we will provide online access to our collection so you can discover what we have prior to our visit. Our staff can also assist you in your research.
Each year the NJ Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation awards two $2500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are accepted ito a college or university. After visiting the Memorial, students are required to complete an application and an essay about their trip.
