California State Military Museum


The The California State Military Museum houses over 33,000 artifacts as well a substantial library and archives. In addition to the main facility in Sacramento, the museum also has three satellite museums at Camp Roberts in Monterey County, Camp San Luis Obispo in San Luis Obispo County, and the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base (under development) in Orange County. We also oversee non-public Regimental Rooms at the San Diego Armory and other National Guard facilities across the state.

The Major General Walter P. Story Memorial Library and Research Center is one of the finest collections of military history writings in the western United States. With over 10,000 volumes and growing rapidly, the library is one of the state's hidden educational and historical treasures. Topics range from general military history to very specific and one of a kind documents, such as original unit rosters of early California Militia units. Use of the library is free.
