General George Patton Museum of Leadership
The General George Patton Museum of Leadership is a museum in Fort Knox, Kentucky, dedicated to the memory of General George S. Patton, Jr., and his role as a leader from World War I to the present day. The museum is administered by the U.S. Army Cadet Command, Fort Knox and the US Army Training and Doctrine Command. The museum is open to the public and admission is free.
The present building was originally constructed between 1972 and 1992 for the Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor without cost to the U.S. Government by the Cavalry-Armor Foundation (now called the Patton Museum Foundation).
As of September 7, 2010, the building will house the newly established "General George Patton Museum of Leadership".
The museum includes a number of Patton's personal effects, dating from his childhood until the end of World War II, including his office van and touring car.
The gift store sells mini replica gold bars (2 sizes) from the nearby gold depository.
