Research Inquiries

The museum research library and special collections contain materials that support the history of Army transportation from colonial days to the present.

Our focus is on US Army fielded and experimental equipment in five areas – Aircraft, Rail, Vehicle, Watercraft and Experimental Equipment.

These materials include publications, manuscripts, vertical files, personal papers, blueprints, periodicals, memorialization files, and historical and contemporary photographs. The majority of this collection is from the inception of the Transportation Corps in 1942 through Desert Storm.

The research library is located in the main Museum building, and open to the public by appointment. The library and special collections are for research on the premises only, and are not available for checkout or inter-library loan.


Inquiries may be phoned in, mailed, or emailed to us.

Please be specific in your request, explaining exactly what you are seeking, time period and as much information as you can to help us in your search. Detailed or broad requests may require you to visit and peruse the materials yourself.

Email or phone before making an appointment to visit; we may be able to answer your question right away. Be sure to give us your contact information and include your name, address, phone number and email address to respond.
