Monuments Men and Women Museum Network   

Non-wartime service of the Monuments Men and Women to museums throughout the United States and around the world, in their respective roles as directors, curators, restorers, professors, art historians, and much more, connect the Monuments Men Foundation to practically every museum. Accordingly, we created an international Monuments Men and Women Museum Network, to honor and promote this shared legacy.


Monuments Men Foundation members will receive free admission or store discount at museums who are part of this network. Below you may find a summary of connections to each participating museum.
