The Liberty Bell Memorial Museum is located at 1601 Hickory Street, Melbourne, Florida in Wells Park. It houses military war exhibits, facsimiles of important documents in U.S. history and a full size replica of the Liberty Bell.
Honor America Inc., at one time a national organization, founded the Liberty Bell Memorial Museum and used a former concrete ground water storage tank and pump house of the original Melbourne Water Works to house the museum.  Architect Joe Vislay designed the water storage tank and pump house and contractor Robert Stitzel built it. Honor America Inc. expanded the museum in 2003 by building an additional wing to the existing facility. In 2013, the Liberty Bell Memorial Museum won the prestigious Colonel John H. Magruder III Award given by the Marine Corps Historical Foundation for excellence in depicting Marine Corps history.
Brevard Hall of Fame
The Liberty Bell Memorial museum also houses the Brevard Hall of Fame. John "Coach" Tice founded the Brevard Hall of Fame in 2012.
