The Mission of The Citadel Museum is to preserve, interpret, and make available for research use, historic material pertaining to The Citadel as an institution.
The Citadel Museum represents the history of The Military College of South Carolina from its founding in 1842 to the present. This temporary exhibit explores the long history of The Citadel by showcasing some of our past and present uniforms displayed along a timeline. A display of Citadel rings from 1895 to the present is also a focal point of the Museum. Look for other topical displays throughout the Daniel Library. Through a self guided tour, the visitor experiences the essence of each era in The Citadel's history.
Exciting changes are planned for our museum to enhance innovation, collaboration, and leadership. The new exhibits will include refurbished displays and interactive, multimedia experiences. New features in the Daniel Library will include a digital scholarship center and maker space laboratory.
