Tony Lute first housed his collection in the Barnes Crossing Mall in a space called the Tupelo War Memorial. Moving the museum to Ballard Park behind the Oren Dunn Museum allowed Lute to expand his collection, which includes uniforms, artillery, war letters, and many other artifacts. Each item is well documented and helps preserve the legacy of the great men and women who have served over the history of the United States.
The museum has many different types of memorabilia from the various wars, including uniforms, weapons, maps, and pictures from the Civil War. From the later wars, the museum displays Jeeps, airplane and ship models, books, weapons, and some movies. There are also radios, field telephones, and a document signed by Abraham Lincoln.
