Camp Mabry Open House/Muster Day

Apr 16 2016 @ 8:00 am - Apr 17 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Updated Schedule for Sunday due to weather concerns

muster

Muster Day traces it’s roots back to when Texas was still a republic. In the early days, on an annual basis, the troops were ‘mustered’ or called to report.  Over the years, the mustering of the troops became obsolete. However, the Texas Military Forces Museum as part of the Texas Military Forces  yearly Open House at Camp Mabry, holds a Muster Day where reenactors of all periods from the Texas Revolution  through current times can display their historical uniforms, weapons and equipment and show them to the general public. There is a large WWII battle reenactment each day. These battles feature  200 Allied and German soldiers recreating a WWII battle using original equipment, tanks, and weapons from the time period. This includes a fly over by AT-6 Texans as part of the battle. The museum will be open Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm.

We greatly honored to announce the Texas Military Forces Museum’s and Texas Military Department’s upcoming event A Salute to Vietnam Veterans The link below allows Vietnam Veterans to register for the event and let us that they and their family or friends are coming. This will allow us to keep them abreast of details of the event and plan the appropriate amount of seating for them and their guests.

In addition to the speeches, living history demonstration and movie, remember that the traveling Vietnam Wall will also be on display at Camp Mabry’s Parade ground.
