BIRTHPLACE MUSEUM

GLENN MILLER BIRTHPLACE MUSEUM

The 3,000 sq. ft. museum, located within our visitor center, will immerse you in the life of Glenn Miller. The museum exhibit is divided into several sections that help to tell the fascinating story of Glenn’s rise to stardom, his service in World War II, and the impact his music has had through the decades. One of a kind artifacts and rotating special exhibits make each trip a unique experience. Click HERE for museum photos.

Juxtaposed to the Glenn Miller Museum lies the original birthplace home of the legendary band leader and musician.  On March 1, 1989, Glenn Miller’s daughter, Jonnie Dee Miller, purchased the home where her father was born 85 years earlier. The Glenn Miller Birthplace Society manages the preservation, maintenance and interpretation of the home.  Click HERE for more information on the Glenn Miller Birthplace Home, Glenn Miller Bio and family information. 

The Glenn Miller Birthplace Society and Museum has much to offer.  In addition to the Glenn Miller Birthplace and Glenn Miller Museum locations, as well as the annual Glenn Miller Festival in June, the GMBS offers many special exhibits and events for history buffs and Glenn Miller fans!  

Watch for our new special exhibit, "1939 - The Year He Found the Sound; Moonlight Serenade," in May, 2019. Special thanks to Dennis Spragg, Glenn Miller Archives, Boulder, Colorado & Ed Polic, Glenn Miller historian and author for their work on this exhibit.
