 ABOUT THE MUSEUM 

As you enter the foyer from the front of the Fresno Veterans Memorial Auditorium, you enter a marble floored area the size of some banquet halls. The ceilings are art, the walls, the very building itself, all art. Before you is the entrance to the Legion of Valor Museum. Welcome!

The Legion of Valor Museum grew out of the efforts of several dedicated Legion of Valor members and their wives who worked with the City of Fresno to use the Fresno Veterans Memorial Auditorium. Staffed by volunteers and supported in part by the City of Fresno, the museum houses thousands of items and papers donated by Legion of Valor members and others. Numerous framed citations, photographs, and exhibits tell the story of America's wars as seen by individual soldiers, sailors, and airmen. Uniforms and equipment of different eras are also on display. The Legion of Valor extends its appreciation to Mayor Jim Patterson, President of the Council, Ken Steitz and Council Members Garry Bredefeld, Tom Boyajian, Chris Mathys, Henry Perea, Dan Ronquillo, and Sal Quintero.
