About the museum

The heritage of a great institution

The Sullivan Museum and History Center is a 16,000-square-foot facility that features permanent and changing exhibitions, learning stations, a visible-object conservation lab, spaces for exhibit preparation and object storage, a fully equipped electronic classroom and conference space, and a reference room for researchers and scholars.

The building’s lighting, heating and cooling systems are designed to provide maximum protection for Norwich University’s collection of artwork and artifacts. The exterior features natural materials—granite, warm cherry wood and copper—connecting the building visually to both Kreitzberg Library and the rich architectural traditions of the area.

Norwich Trustee Col. J.N. Pritzker, a generous supporter of the museum project and founder of the Pritzker Military Library in Chicago, noted, “The greatest intangible asset of the University is its history and traditions … It is essential to have a place where the physical artifacts of that history can be properly stored, cataloged and displayed.”

The Sullivan Museum and History Center offers dynamic opportunities for visitors, students, faculty and alumni to, in the words of Norwich University Pres. Richard Schneider, “immerse themselves in the heritage of this great institution.”

Mission statement: To demonstrate who we are in the present through interaction with our past, our community, our beliefs, and the vision that we hold for the future.
