Patton Museum hours changed

-A A +A

The General George Patton Museum of Leadership’s hours of operation will be reduced and its centerpiece exhibit – the Gen. Patton Gallery – will be closed as the museum undergoes a $2.3 million transformation over the next seven months.

Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturdays. Additionally, the museum is closed Dec. 23-Jan. 2.

The move of the U.S. Army Armor School from Fort Knox to Fort Benning, Ga., in 2011 included the removal of tank artifacts at the Patton Museum, which prompted a change in focus to one of Army leadership from 1775 to the present.

The Patton Museum’s grand reopening is scheduled for June 14 – the U.S. Army’s 238th birthday.
