Just a heads-up to our supporters and visitors - the Father's Day "Moving Through the Ages" Open House at the American Heritage Museum / Collings Foundation on June 20-21 has been cancelled for 2020 as public gatherings are still limited in Massachusetts. We are offering pre-booked, one-on-one tank driving experiences on Sunday, June 21 for Father's Day gifts, but the museum and the museum grounds will remain closed to the public. For more information on tank driving experiences, see www.americanheritagemuseum.org/tank-driving-experiences/

As the American Heritage Museum is a part of the State of Massachusetts Phase III re-opening, we hope to reopen around July 2nd, but an exact date has not been announced by the state. Please stay tuned here for more information. Thank you for your patience.
