Stars and Stripes, our nation’s military newspaper, started in Bloomfield with the publication of the first edition on November 9, 1861. The museum focuses on the people who have produced this legendary publication over the years. With more than 7,000 square feet of exhibits, a replica WWII barracks in the barn, monthly kids programs, and monthly story hour for kids, the Museum offers much for visitors. Check our Facebook Page for more information.
The mission of the National Stars and Stripes Museum & Library is the documentation, preservation, and communication of the iconic story of the Stars and Stripes newspaper and the commitment and service of the Stars and Stripers, our servicemen and women, and everyday citizens through exhibits, educational outreach, and special programs to further our freedoms and values.
Additionally, the facility serves historians, students, writers, and the general public. The facility has climate-controlled storage, handicapped accessibility, meeting rooms, and research archives.
