TSA Museum Of The West
The Salvation Army Museum of the West was dedicated in 2002 by General John Gowans (R). This ceremony was by no means the beginnings of the effort in the Western Territory to preserve our rich heritage. Since the 1970’s the USA Western Territory has been collecting and housing artifacts and memorabilia from the territory’s past. The majority of the current catalog is composed of the items that were being sent during this time period.
In 2002 the Western Territory cemented its commitment to the preservation of its history by building and funding a new museum and archive. The museum houses exhibits that display various aspects of the territory’s history, such as, uniforms from different periods, the music of the Army in the West, the Army’s participation in the Rose Bowl Parade, and many more.
The museum is open daily, Monday through Friday, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. If you would like to schedule a guided tour of the museum please e-mail.
