The National Prisoner of War Museum opened in 1998 as a memorial to all American
prisoners of war in America's past who have served their country with dignity and
distinction, so that current and future generations will be inspired by their service
and sacrifice. Former prisoners of war partnered with Andersonville National Historic
Site to create and develop the Museum, the only museum solely dedicated to interpreting
the American prisoner of war experience.
Exhibits use art, photographs, displays and video presentations to focus on the capture, living conditions, hardships and experiences of American prisoners of war in all periods. The museum also serves as the park's visitor center.
The National Prisoner of War Museum also serves as the Andersonville National Historic Site Welcome Center.
Every day of the week - 9 am till 4:30 pm except
Closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
