About the Museum

The Camp Atterbury Museum has reopened in its new home in the Camp Atterbury Welcome Center on Hospital Road! The Welcome Center is on the right side of Hospital Road, located just before Durbin Street. Admission to the museum is free and the museum can accommodate individuals as well as large groups, tours, student groups, and the physically disabled. Access to Camp Atterbury is not required to visit the Camp Atterbury Museum and the Outdoor Veterans Memorial. 

The museum is set up on a historical timeline that takes the visitor on a journey through pre-acquisition, construction, activation, unit training and finally, Camp Atterbury as it is today. Camp Atterbury's rich history is on display in artifacts, papers, and photographs from the past seventy years and the museum is a delight to history buffs of all ages. Click here to read the Atterbury History Brochure
