Pritzker Military Museum & Library

The Mission of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and to develop appropriate programs focusing on the citizen soldier in the preservation of democracy.





COL (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), Founder of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the citizen soldier. Today, building upon that foundation through the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library has become a top class, non-partisan, research and archival organization that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the importance of the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served in the armed forces both at home and abroad.

Through its collection and programs, the Museum & Library is dedicated to serving as a forum for those discussions and preserving them for future generations.
