About the National Coast Guard Museum Association
The National Coast Guard Museum Association is committed to building a world-class Museum in New London, CT that will not only honor the heritage of the U.S. Coast Guard, but also provide to the public a gateway to discover Coast Guard life. Interactive exhibits, programs, public and private partnerships, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-based educational programs and leadership training opportunities are expected to be a formidable part of the Museum experience.
The components of the Museum will reflect the missions of the USCG curated in three themed areas of Safety, Security, and Stewardship explored through the following five story lines: Defenders of the Nation, Enforcers of the Seas, Lifesavers Around the Globe, Champions of Commerce, and Protectors of the Environment. Museum programming with these story lines is being developed through a thoughtful planning process. The Coast Guard story will be showcased in various galleries, exhibits, and immersive and tactile experiences that bring to life the heroism, bravery, and devotion to duty of those who serve.
