About the Museum

Incorporated in 2000, the Fort Devens Museum is a private non-profit organization that collects, preserves, and shares artifacts and stories that tell the history of Camp Devens and Fort Devens from 1917 to the present. Once known as “New England’s largest Army Base”, Fort Devens now has more than 100 years of history under its belt.

Beyond historical exhibits, our space also functions as a welcoming place for Veterans and their families to gather, remember, and share the stories that are most important to them.

Over the last century, more than a million men, women, and children have passed through Fort Devens. They trained, lived, and worked here and left their indelible marks up and down these streets. In every well-worn uniform, in every creased letter home, and in every faded photograph is a story that we ensure will never be forgotten.
