We are part of the Fulda Museums community. The community currently includes: Vonderau Museum, Cathedral Museum (Dommuseum), Fulda Carnival museum (Fastnachtsmuseum), German Fire Brigade Museum (Deutsches Feuerwehrmuseum), Children’s Academy (Kinderakademie) and the Environment Center.
We are planning joint actions that we will soon introduce bit by bit.
Blackhorse Museum History of Americans in Fulda, Bad Hersfeld, Bad Kissingen
We get the nearly 50-year history of Americans in Fulda starting with the Constabluary 1945-1951 the 14th Cavalry Regiment of 1951-1972 and the 11th ACR-Blackhorse from 1972 to 1993/1994.
In our exhibition you will also find a theme room about the United States Army Europe (USAREUR) and 7th Army generally.
We are a member of the association for museums in Hessen, of the federal association of the German-American friendship OUTREACH-KONTAKT and the DAFKS KONTAKT Fulda’s association.
On the following pages we have put together some information for you. If you have additional questions, please contact us.

Exponates donations and loans
Our museum is basically interested in all historical and objects of today’s everyday life in the US Army. Also, the museum of stories and events of contemporary witnesses during the service in Germany is also interested in civilian employees or civilians. Such experiences are stored in a database and serve the actual task for the permanent preservation of friendship and history – the people and the experienced are the key to friendship. These objects should use the collection stocks sensibly or help to close existing gaps.
If you want to offer the museum one or more objects as a donation or as a loan, just come over during opening hours in the museum or send us your offer with the help of the form below.
All exhibited exhibits are provided next to the description with the name of the donor or loaner.
The objects should use the collection stocks sensibly or help to close existing gaps.
After receiving a letter or an email, we will contact you as soon as possible.
We look forward to your mail!

Donate Your contribution to history
We have been collecting exhibits bit by bit for many years. We receive history to friendship with the Americans who were stationed in the Fulda, Bad Hersfeld and Bad Kissingen region. Several people have already participated in the initiative and have also become part of this large and interesting story.
Take part and become part of this project! Leave your name in this story – support the initiative with a contribution!
We want to open additional exhibition rooms
Our museum in Fulda now has too little exhibition space.
We are in building an additional exhibition area in Tann/Rhön. We acquired the building with around 600m². We are now to renovate the building.
We need help for this – every euro or US dollar counts.
