The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum (BSNM) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in January 2001, by Viet Nam veteran and African American military historian, Paul J. Matthews. The vision of BSNM is to help build pride and patriotism in everyone as they review the contributions of men and women across all cultures and ethnicities who have served in America’s Armed Forces.
Its mission is to preserve, promote and perpetuate the history, tradition and outstanding contributions of the Buffalo Soldier.
All of the museum’s programs are educational, informative, and designed to encourage patrons, especially the youth, to read more about history. BSNM does all it can to foster programs that will promote literacy, historical research, personal improvement, family genealogy, community development, tourism, drama, art, science, the environment, and math.
